A nice way to get away.

Very cool TR. Your photos are outstanding; the one with you in the chair is almost 3D, awesome colors.

Great photos, but could you do the next ones with a reflective lake? :D

Great photos Schmalz! I had the same problem the night I slept at Flower Lake the week before. It was like being in a wind tunnel.

Agreed! :thumbsup: I like to disply photos like this in my work office to remind me, and the boss, that I have better things to do.
I'm still rather convinced that you can achieve more than you've ever dreamed of if you just lower your standards.

Great pics and TR on your site. I went to Matlock a couple years ago in October (I think) and there was so much wildfire smoke I couldn't even see University Peak. Now I see what I missed.
