Friday Fitness Hike

Friday’s hike started from the Trailhead Staging Area. George, Jill, Bob, Sarge, Janet, Bill, Amy, and I hiked the Scenic Trail. When we got back to the Pemberton, George, Jill, and Amy returned to the trailhead for a 4.5 mile hike. Bill, Janet, Bob, Sarge, and I went the other way on the Pemberton, returning via the Lariat, Granite, Wagner, and Tortoise trails for an 11.2 mile hike.

I’ve added a new element to my photographic workflow for this week’s photos, but I’m not very good at it yet. I think that some of these have a reddish cast. I’ve decreased the saturation in areas of a few of them where it’s especially bad, but it’s still noticeable.

Our hike started at 8:00am, so the sun was well up when we started. I thought about getting out early for a sunrise shot, but I would’ve had to show up well over an hour before the hike began. This is a view from the Scenic Trail at the beginning of our hike.

Yet another view from the Scenic Trail. My camera battery died at around this point.
