So, Noah and I have returned from our hike along the Hoh River Trail, and I have to say that while it kicked our asses — nine miles on day one, 20 miles on day two (including 4,100 feet of elevation over six miles), and then nine miles on day three — it was amazing. Ten miles into the second day, the view below is what we were treated to… definitely worth the work. When I get back to NYC, there’ll be more pictures; I’m on dialup here and without my trusty, rusty Photoshop.

Can’t wait to see all the photos.

Safe journeys!

Photoshop, shmotoshop. I think it’s a neat shot with the silhouette, actually. :-)

Thanks, Chuck — but that’s just plain, old fashioned good photography. And since that’s me in the picture, I can’t even take credit for that; it’s all Noah.

I love plain, old fashioned good photography — I’m looking forward to seeing more of them!

I’ve only done relatively minor day hiking (4-5 miles tops), and never in an area as stunningly beautiful as what’s in this picture. You must be in better shape than I am, ‘cause I think that if I tried to do 20 miles with 4,100 feet of elevation, they’d end up helicoptering me out of there.

On a slight tangent, I’m in the market for a digital camera, and I’m collecting recommendations. What have you and/or Noah got? I’m particularly interested in one that allows me to have manual control over aperture and shutter speed.
