Here are the original photographs that I used as reference for the Color the Tahoe Rim Trail coloring book. Each photograph is identified by the same illustration number and title that you will find in the book. Obviously, you are not beholden to use the same color palette for your illustrations as are found in the photos, but many people have requested to see the origin points for the illustrations.
Many of the photos I chose for this project were not necessarily the best pictures I took while hiking the Tahoe Rim Trail. However, I felt they were the best for use in illustrations that would ultimately be colored (by you!). Some of the illustrations share a close relationship with their reference photos, while others were merely a starting point from which to draw (particularly the ones that were originally in a landscape orientation). Enjoy!
For making the trip this far down the page I would like to reward you with some bonus illustrations that did not make the cut in the final book. As much as I wanted to include them, I simply had to trim the fat so as not to end up with a book three inches thick. All of these bonus pages to the Color the Tahoe Rim Trail coloring book are hi-res (300ppi), formatted at 8.5 x 11″, and offset to the right so you can three-hole punch them and collect them in a binder if you choose. The easiest way to download them to your device is to right-click and “save image as” or “open in a new window” and then save them to your device from there.
