The Minimalist

Sometimes every ounce matters and you need to downsize your travel journal even more. For the 3 day backpacking trip to South Sisters, I chose to bring a very thin, small 3"x5" notebook, one pen and a few colored pencils in a ziplock bag. 

I choose to only use the 'Map a Day' style of journaling as stopping to sketch was unrealistic atop a mountain in the chilly wind. I waited to illustrate my story when I was snuggled warm in my tent. 

I admit, the challenge for me was to be drawing cartoon style images out of my head. But the end result is so playful and quite humorous. And it certainly tells my story! Like anything new, practice will make it easier.
