From Thru-Hiking the Appalachian Trail to Blazing a Hiking Community with Heidi "Picasso" Nisbett
Feb 18, 2021 Season 3 Episode 22
Lori Prima, Heidi Nisbett

Heidi "Picasso" Nisbett aka Sketching Summits shares her journey from her first long thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail to helping to blaze the hiking community within Charlotte, North Carolina. Heidi shares how the Appalachian inspired her to sketch (and be featured as a Appalachian Trail Conservancy featured #trailismymuse artist), and find a community of hikers as she brings all types of hikers together as part of Trail Talks and meetups at Blue Blaze Brewing.  She's hosted thru hikers Jessica "Dixie" Mills, Jennifer Pharr Davis and Heather Anderson.

We cover her section hikes of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail through the wilderness of the Linville Gorge and  the urban trails in Raleigh-Durham. She shares trail stories and favorite parts of hiking the Art Loeb Trail, Foothills Trail, Superior Hiking Trail and more.

Reach out to Heidi to check out her art or even commission a sketch of your own favorite summit photo.
