Editor’s note: What if the outdoors AMC exists to promote and protect were to alter dramatically—or even to disappear? We asked a graphic artist and former AMC caretaker with a master’s degree in cartooning to paint the striking picture.
Iona Fox holds a B.A. in geology and an MFA in cartooning. She was lucky to spend 12 seasons working as a naturalist and caretaker in AMC's White Mountain hut system. See more of her work at ionafoxcomics.com.
