Is that a bandana under his hat or curly locks? With my old eyes I can't tell for sure.:)
Piece of cake.

Hey HD

You want to come work down in the business office, I'd love it if you'd be the one
signing our checks.

No OR I was not bored, rather enjoyed the pace, and my respiratory system definitely
appreciated it, though I lost my voice when I got back to the car, and was
extremely congested.
Did not have a cold all winter, and then get one right before a trip, oh well.
By the way, did you find what you were looking for at Morrison Lake?

Mav,

Due to the weather I opted out of that and instead made connections with old friends on a leisurely roundabout way home. I feel kind of bad that you missed the Hetch Hetchy overlook during the evening. Think what you could have done with this kind of light:
looking NE.JPG
looking NE from 5700
or this:
another Hetch Hetchy view.JPG
Another view of Hetch Hetchy


The light my last evening was truly outstanding.

There will all ways be a next time, such is a photographers positive outlook.
Getting that truly special light in a truly special place is what it is all about.
Of course finding that place is much easier than getting the perfect lighting
at the time you are there.
Knowing which season, watching weather patterns all help in the percentage
game, but rarely does that special light materialize, especially when we would
like it.
