good job the 3 of you - remember where there's scorpions there are snakes - be careful where you put your hands.
mountain hiking is addictive:
I can quit anytime I want - I just choose not to want

Yeah Tom, we saw lots of squiggly tracks in the sand (pix didn't come out).

Gotta figure out how to carry the G9. Kinda awkward with the neck strap (neck was sore on Sunday). Also have to learn how to use it, different settings and things are moved around. I ended up using the S80 more on this trip (carried both cameras and the S80 was easier to get to). Be careful carrying your camera in your pocket. DaveG cracked his LCD screen carrying it in his pocket (like you do)

I wanted to hike, but my body didn't, so I took my time driving home.
