The photo that inspired this print was taken at Cloudy Pass on the second day of a solo trek that took me close to wildfires that had shut down portions of the PCT in the Glacier Peak Wilderness that summer. These trees look misty, like they’re shrouded in rain and fog, which is a familiar site in the Pacific Northwest. Despite the name of the pass and what looks like clouds in the case of the original photo is actually forest fire smoke.
Cloudy Pass is currently featured in Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museums 2019 New Impression exhibit.
Letterpress printed from a single, hand carved, linoleum block, this is an eight-pass reduction cut plus one additional pass for metal type.
