Me and James (Exavius) went to Kings Canyon NP Saturday morning to see what we can capture. We hiked a "mainly flat" 1.5 mile round trip at Zumwalt Meadow. There was a couple of boulder fields that we had to climb up/down (remember I can't bend my knees), so it was a bit tricky at times, but I made it. Not quit ready to backpack though. He was nice enough to give me the photos of me so I posted some of those too.

Ansel Adams?

Trying to "get the shot", I had to climb up a rock to capture this. In the process of doing that a banged my "knee"...but I got the shot!

Could have been, she had two fawns. There was another family close by and they had a small dog.

Nice Mike.
On the last shot is that smoke in the sky coming in from the west?
