    Stunning stuff. Was that goat as big as he looks? :)

    Up close that goat appeared extremely powerful, we were at about 12,500 feet and he was coming toward us on the trail, at the point I took that photo he just stood and stared at us. He looked like he wanted the trail, I had nowhere to go so we just stared at each other for awhile. I was concerned he would just plow through us, then all of the sudden he ran down the side of the hill a bit, then around us, then came back up on the trail behind us and went along on his merry way.

    Beautiful series. These small cameras sure make hiking a lot easier, so much lighter and compact.

    Cool moment. This time of year animals are a bit more aggresive, so be glad you were not seen as a threat.

    I agree. I can't see myself hauling around a DSLR on a hike, but the NEX travels well.

    Was a rockin' trip. Did the same route last year, but I was just coming back from a badly injured ankle from a climbing fall and the route just kicked my butt. This year I was in better shape, and enjoyed the trip so much more. Although even with my butt being kicked by the mountain, I don't think you can have a bad day is such a beautiful place.
