It's a little harder to make scrapbook pages if you weren't actually there, but not impossible. Had I been there, I either would have bitten the bullet and taken the lift, or hiked an extra hour to get to the top of Caples Crest (more likely).
This layout is from my week #2 assignment in my Jessica Sprague Now We're Rockin' with Photoshop class. I learned several fun new things...recoloring! overlays and blending modes, and a hint of typing paths.
Tod took the photos on the 'assessment trip' to Kirkwood.
(And the assessment is there is quite a lot of work to do!).
