ACEO Winter Forest in Wonsor & Newton Artist watercolor on 140lb watercolor paper. Painted from memory of how the forests looked when I was a kid. In the deep growth you could see pairs of very large old trees with big branches pointing exactly the same direction. They were tied that way as saplings by native people to mark trails, pointed along the direction of the trail. I thought they were fascinating and that it was such an elegant way to mark trails.

They ought to do that along the modern hiking trails, it'd be as simple and low-impact a solution to the need for signs and markers as it was for native Americans. It doesn't change the environment one whit but it does point the way.
