The weather kind of crapped out on us... and that's crapped with a capital 'C'... it is mid-July and we got SNOWED ON!! But it was a great day none the less. Since it wasn't sunny, and by that I mean since it was socked in with clouds, we had no choice but to find things on the ground to photograph. Along with the K7 body, I bought a 16-50mm f/2.8 lens, which I am very pleased with. Jody and I had fun finding and naming all sorts of cool little flowers (she's studying to be a Hiking Guide), and even though my new lens is not a macro, the K7's super-fast autofocus and the 16-50's short focus distance let me take some decent close-up shots.
We hiked out the Ribbon Falls trail and made it to within 2km of the falls... and if a blizzard hadn't begun, we may have actually bothered to see the falls... but it was chilly and wet and we turned around and headed back to the parking lot. After cranking the heat and getting all cozy in my car's heated seats, we made a quick side trip to Wedge Pond, and by two o'clock (we started at 6:30am!), it was agreed that we were done for the day.
