Backpack trip with Tommy750 this weekend, loop trip from Agua Caliente up Squaw Cyn and down into Inner Pasture then back up Moonlight Cyn. I gotta say Squaw was no fun and won't be on my return trip list anytime soon. IP was beautiful as always but the gnats were pretty bad, they were in my face the whole trip but some 99% deet relieved some of it. Didn't take too many photos, Tom may have some to contribute.

Most of these are from my old Olympus mount Sigma 600mm manual focus mirror lens on my Fuji X-E1 with an adapter.















These are from Grapevine Cyn and Sunset Mountain over Spring Break Week 2

Nice pics Daren. The entrance to Squaw after the spring didn't look any fun (jagged, rocky, bad footing) when Alex and I ventured past on our way to The Potrero in December. Looks like you guys had a great moon, wish I could have joined up with you and Tom. Next time.

Would have agree with Daren, Squaw Canyon was not my favorite part of the trip especially with 7L of water still in the pack. Here's a couple pics:

Raven, gotta be a raven, bill is too big. smile I like how the clouds managed to just clear out above the mountains in your shot Tom, great vertical symmetry going on in that photo. Bokeh. Thanks for the new vocabulary word.

More like Daren's cheap mirror (Catadioptric) lenses....cuz he doesn't have $11,000.00 for a real lens...http://www.imaging-resource.com/news/2013/09/11/understanding-bokeh-the-art-and-science-behind-the-beauty-of-blur-part-1

Just reading up on ravens and crows( http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Common_Raven/id#similar ). The guy was not in a group, looks like he has ruffled neck feathers and was pretty big with a big beak. Thanks for pointing out the now obvious, Jim! Wasn't really paying attention but now I will.

If anything he was following us..! I thought there was something about crows vs ravens and hopping vs walking....Confused
