Okay, I’ve made it past about, oh, maybe four more shots. This is slow going at the moment. But how could I not stop and enjoy and remember this scene?
I’ve heard that “the best camera is the one you have with you.”
Um. Sure. Thing is, if you don’t get THAT camera out of your backpack and only use your phone you suffer the consequences. So here is my “I was too lazy and used the iPhone” shot. It works fine … but only in this size. Sigh.
John Muir Wilderness
For some reason I’m looking back again at our 2017 pack trip. On this particular day the majority of the gang hiked up higher and we saw some amazing sights. By the time I shot this I think I was headed back down, while many were up higher. I liked the cloud reflections on the lake.
Early Evening at a Lake, 8.28.17
This time I’m looking back at the backpack trip I was able to take over a year ago, with some very wonderful people who also happen to be great photographers. I’m still ever so grateful that they allowed me to tag along that year.
We had weather on some days, and this was one of those days. I do love some rain, so when it came in I was pretty darn happy.

Grass, Water, Trees, and Rocks, 10.8.17
I’m so easily distracted. I should be cleaning … but I was looking back at images from the Sierra Nevada … even as far back as 2003. Oh how young Dan and I look! I won’t post any of those here: I was using a camera that was less than stellar, and while it’s fun to look at younger me, it’s not fun to see the low quality images. (If you wonder, that first camera was some sort of Olympus and if it was more than 3 megapixels I’d be surprised.)
Moving forward, I finally progress to decent cameras. Not that that meant I would always get great images, but at least they wouldn’t be pixilated.
Rocks in the Clouds, 2.23.13
I have a lot of photos from our recent trip that could be reviewed and worked on (or dumped). Instead, though, I have gone back a year. I suspect it’s because Dan is in on a Sierra trip right now and this is my way of coping. Or something.
This is from our pack trip. (Dan is currently with some of the same men who were on the trip I was able to take.) We had some wonderful weather while we were out … I love it when rain comes in or even just threatens to do so.
