For some reason this piece of artwork managed to go unnoticed for over a month now. It was until I checked my inbox in the BHC page yesterday that I found this.

Sue Arnold created a sketch of one of the bridges in the Keeseville Hamlet, most notably the Stone Arch Bridge spanning the AuSable River right in the middle of the business district. It’s the oldest of the four historic bridges that one should see while visiting Keeseville (see the tour guide: The Historic Bridges of Keeseville, New York).

This drawing depicts the bridge from an oblique view but from an artistic point of view. More I will not say, just that I will let you interpret this as you celebrate the year we’ve been waiting for for quite some time now. 🎉🍻🏔️
