This place is something else. The journey there is an adventure in itself, and just as we arrived, the rain rolled in - on cue!

I mean, what can you do?! It starts pouring rain in the middle of this shot (above), I'd say right after the green character. Those rain-bones on the right: teal, blue, purple and pink were the quickest skeletons I've ever drawn.  Camera was not happy, wiped it off best I could and let it soak in the silica packets that I collect anytime I get new shoes - I throw those in my camera bag whenever I get the chance - You should too!

Here's Astrobandit walking with an ancient tree we found along the way.

One more of just the tree - I thought that branch toward the end looked like a demon's claw.
