Just a bunch ‘o rocks in the high country — John Muir Wilderness.
Nearing 7 PM in the John Muir Wilderness, 8.28.17

Between the horrible fires in our area and Covid-19 I’m not as likely to head out on a walk with a camera. Truth be told, I’m less likely to walk at all! Because of this I’m doing a lot of looking back at past years. It’s been fun to remember wonderful times I’ve had; I’ve been so fortunate to get to travel a lot these past eight years or so after a lot of years of very little excursions.
Today I thought I’d share a few images from a backpack trip I took in 2017. A photography group allowed me to tag along, and it was such a wonderful time. These days I wonder if it was the last trip I’ll ever take. One never knows! Here are a few more intimate images I made on that trip.

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.

Yep … another of Dan at work. Because. This time he’s a bit further away, but you can spot him, I’m sure!
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.
