Recently Erik Koeppel and I hiked to the top of Mt. Willard. We spent the afternoon drawing and just taking in the glory of this amazing view. The view from Mt. Willard has been famously painted by, William Sheridan Young , Frank H. Shapleigh, and Benjamin Champney, among others. The View from Mt. Willard (also known as Artist’s Bluff, in the 19th century) beyond it’s fantastic view of Crawford Notch, also looks down on the Willey House site.
