Have camera will use

This selfie was tough to take! I used a 10sec timer, since my remote was giving me trouble. Having to jump over ice pools en-route to my posing location, about 15+ times, before I got the shot I wanted, was pretty tiring! Plus, it was absolutely freezing in the strong wind. doh.gif

On my morning hike today I caught the two peaks of Saddle Rock just visible in the fog. Kind of spooky.

Sweet shot Mike, I see some great skiing there - too bad you didn't capture someone carving that curving sunlit area!

We expected rain, but I wanted to try out a new camera, so we headed for Ancient Lakes. We parked at the lower trailhead and walked up to the waterfall, then up past it around through the labyrinth of gulleys along the top of the escarpment, then through the gap and down to Dusty Lake. Then we headed down to the Columbia and back to the car -- the rain began 10 minutes before we go there, so a great day!

12' 6" diameter cedar on the north slopes of Treen Peak. We speculated that the number of people who had been here could probably be counted on one hand, with it being possible that no one has ever stood by this tree before.

Last weekend I walked the bluff trail above Perego's Lagoon and was treated to a brief but wonderful almost sunset. (Went back this weekend too.)
