Squaw Valley is well known for the ski resort within it but it is also a wonderful place to visit in the summer and fall. Shirley Canyon is one of my favorite places to hike in the Tahoe area-for the most part the trail runs along Squaw Creek, a clear water creek with lots of riffles and cobble stones, and then there are all the beautiful big trees...
In this linocut we got back to our roots...some of the first really popular QLP prints were linocut landscapes.

We used a woodblock which created a nice texture to the fading sky
This is a multi-plate and reduction linocut print
The final touch...handset type.
