My Locale Boulder, CO
About Me I started backpacking as a teenager in southern appalachia. My summers in college were spent in mountain heaven, glacier national park. Since then, I've lived and played in the high sierras, the cascades, and now the colorado front range. Walking into the mountains for a few days with a light pack never seems to lose its charm. I recently picked up a bad habit called climbing.

New NEX Pancake Zoom
The NEX system just got way more appealing thanks to the introduction of this lense. A totally decent ap-c camera with a 24-75mm range can soon be had for a little under 14 oz. http://store.son...
