Nice pics sooz and tom - looks like it was a great group trip (although a bit cold) and Argus peak looked like a good one. I think I'll head out and try that one as soon as get out from under the pile of work I've gotten buried under.

SN- GREAT shots- you got great coverage of the hike and the whole day! Fun stuff. Snow pics are cool, I was afraid to take my camera out in it. Next time I'll use Joe's plastic bag method!
Anyway, great pics, Tom and Cori! Nice "O- bit (ch)" shots! hahahahahahahahaaaaa.

great pictures Snow - your snow shots were fantastic - that weather sure did come in quick - after the drinking trough incident I am nervous about getting my camera wet.

TT & TC, I have an underwater case for my camera, but it doesn't do me any good sitting in the condo. :( It feels like the camera might have problems now. The S80s are pretty sensitive to moisture. The door is getting stuck again since the snow storm.

Thanks, SG! What did you do on Sun?

TC, maybe he's special? ;) Looks like you registered the same day!

The guys imitating burros . . . Tomcat was lucky the camera survived the dip in the water! Image :D
