I always enjoy your reports, your photos are fantastic. If you got any information for the couple you met on the first night, you should send them that photo. I'd want that on my wall if that were me!

Nice report. Due to family circumstances I had to cancel a trip to Rae Lakes last minute that I had scheduled for September. It was fun to read about yours and see the pictures. What camera and lens(es) did you take with you?

Although I suppose it's tough to take a bad photo thereā€¦those are great. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Guys,

Steven, I don't have their contact info but I did give them my blog address, hopefully they will contact me. They took a few pictures of me as well.

Jeff, I am shooting with an Olympus EM-5, wide angle shots with Panasonic 7-14 lens and other shots with Olympus 75mm lens.

Nice photos Adam. I'm planning on taking my scout troop on the same hike next summer.

It is a stunning hike -- we did it several years ago from the east side (through Kearsarge). I wish my photos were half as good as yours. I see real talent there.

Thanks for a fun trip report. :~)
