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.

This is another image from our 2017 pack trip. I really like it, but because I (typical me!) didn’t use the tripod it isn’t one I could print very large. Still, I think Dan will enjoy it.
Reminder to self: the tripod, while cumbersome, is worth using.
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.

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.

I’m still visiting photos from the pack trip.

Another from the pack trip … what do you see?
