Wolverine Hikes South America

People who know me know that I belong on the Trail. I've thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail (twice),the Pacific Crest Trail and the mighty Continental Divide Trail. I've hiked many of the long trails here in Michigan including being the first to hike both the Ironwood Trail and the Great Lake To Lake Trail. In 2017, I hiked the Israel National Trail and the Golan Heights Trail. I was the first to hike the Baja Divide Trail in Mexico but failed miserably to thru-hike the Bruce Trail in Canada. I'm heading for Ecuador to attempt to hike the TEMBR.

The purpose of this blog is to keep anyone who is interested informed of my progress and to encourage those who are able to support me in this endeavor.

The Murals and Paintings of Ecuador

This post is a bit of a cop-out, I admit. It requires little to no effort on my part since there is hardly any writing to be done. However, I feel I must post it because some of the artwork I have seen in this country is so fantastic that I would be telling a lie of omission with regards to my adventure if I did not share it. Please enjoy and leave me a comment below. Thank you!

My fave.

The next two are half in/half out of the shade. Sorry.

Hi there’Do you know the name of the first painting or print listed here, or the artist?
I could be mistaken, but the Beatles on his chest are probably scarabs and also named dung beatles. Their symbolism is one of hope and reserection and maybe protection. The plant in his hand is most probably corn. It’s universal as lifegiving as the people’s would plant corn squash and beans together. I see this symbol used in a lot of blanket weavings of the native Americans. In the other hand, I don’t know if that is a pipe or something else. Anyway, thanks for sharing the the art works I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s interesting that as a fine Arts graduate in college, we didn’t get into this part of the world. The focus of European and American art dominated. (Typical).
