Sketching up an old hiker

Text and drawing by Frits Ahlefeldt

Old hikers, wind beaten and like old driftwood wandering endless miles, some of them long past a home to come back to. Others taking walks along trails they have visited many times before. But with gear that might be more than 30 years old. Old hikers are kind of fascinating to me
