I would like to thank everyone who made it on this trip, even though we had to cut it short I had a great time. Looks like I'm going to have to give everything a bath though, I didn't get eveything unpacked quick enough, and I have some odd smells going on with gear. The first day of the trip was beautiful as far as weather was concerned, a little foggy when we left the parking lot, but it cleared up nicely, with patchy blue skies, and hints of sun shine peaking through the great big Sequoia trees.
The first day hiking was great, it took quite a while to cover aprox. 6.5 miles, 1. We were all stopping and looking at the huge trees, 2. We were trying out our new cameras (me, and Adam), and 3 Was the horrendous death cones from above that we had to walk on, it was like walking on huge marbles, twisting ankles, knees, not fun, I don't know if they do any trail maintenance, it may have been that we were hiking a little early in the season before they started any trail maintenance, enough of that more pictures!
Trying out the macro setting.
I want to say thanks to Adam for helping me understand how to use my camera a little better, it shows in some of the pic's I took on this trip. I think we may have a new photo junkie in BPL (Adam) He was taking some great pictures, I think he likes his new camera.
We both took this shot, my little cave of mushrooms!
Brought to you by PAN-O-VISION, I should have taken more frames of this view.
One of my favorite trees on this hike, kind of looks like something from the Wizard of OZ.
This came out a little blurry, but not bad for cold hands, no tripod, and macro zoom.
I'll try to post more this week.
