|Tourist season has started, time for me to hit the more obscure trails and quit hiking on Saturdays|
|Mount Washington, I climbed it last summer|
Just a quick social hike to clear my head a bit in time for finals week. Up to the lookout and then down to explore an old logging road.
After next week I'll get back into my twice a week hiking routine. If I hike twice a week I lose weight without dieting.
My father gave a camera lens to my daughter and I borrowed it from her for this hike. I had to clean the fish guts off of it first though. The lens is a Nikon 28-200 all metal everything. Very heavy, no vibration reduction and it only stops down to F22. Still it has twice the zoom as my one and only zoom lens, so it was fun to play with. I only own two lenses, I mostly use the 18-105 stock lens that came with the camera and sometimes. I use the 50 prime lens when I want to take lots of pictures of mushrooms or I want to carry less weight.
We did some trail clearing using the saw I found on the Skokomish river trail last year. The little saw was impessive!
