Credit: NPS Photo: Artwork by Shannon Durbin"After the Storm" (gouche and walnut ink on board) - This piece depicts one of the upturned tree's roots after Hurricane Sandy. While at Catoctin the artist came across a number of these trees. They were at once beautiful and frightening, massive and fragile. They were also narrative, telling a story of the recent upheaval and regeneration in the life of a forest.

She included two of the animals she saw most frequently during her visit. This piece is a throw back to the forest guides and natural history presentations she enjoyed seeing as a child.
