Most of these ballpoint pen doodles were done over a year and a half in two 7x8 inch sketchbooks with coffee in the morning, listening to National Public Radio. They come from impressions of visited places, remembered photos and "what if" musing on the nature of fire and ice in the same place over the same geologic era.  Few are at all accurate depictions of the park's landscape, but instead more string-tied-to-finger gestures, as ideas to return to with a little more care.
