View from Left Knee

Left Knee

This is a view from the blue trail on the Left Knee at Sleeping Giant. Great weather, a bit cool, blue skies.

I created my very first rubber stamp today, using a Speedball linoleum cutter set and a Speedball Speedy-Cut carving block (which is like a very large vinyl eraser). It was a crude first effort, but I was very eager to get out and do some letterboxing, so I didn't make any refinements.

I went up to the Left Knee, carrying my custom-made stamp, an ink pad, some pens, and a fresh booklet for stamping on. Since the pen in the current letterbox had dried up, I left a new pen there. I got my first stamp and left my own in the letterbox! Very exciting!
