    We took a fun Church family camping trip to the Rim Country in AZ. Of course, I took the A6000. The stills are from the 50mm Minolta Macro, the action from the 28-70 FE.

    First up, the nature shots:

    A couple from our "Hike." I say Hike as we were out for about 1/2 Hour with lots of stopping and looking at stuff, but it could hardly be called a "Real" hike. More like a slow amble through the forest.

    And then of course a game of football broke out in the morning.

    Mmmm smores! And nice capture of the interception.
    Green and trees....in AZ! Must have been a welcomed relief and change from The Valley. Well, you folks happily missed a 40+mph dust storm on Saturday.

    It was nice. 50°F at night, 89°F during tbe day.

    We got back to town Saturday about 3ish, and were unpacking when the wind picked up.

    Great trip and photos, Dave. I need to take my kids camping before they are too old to want to go with me!
