Ready for some irony? It rained the majority of the day (it will do that here, it is the Pacific Northwest, after all). We were completely prepared for the rain - the forecast held no surprises. Several times in the morning, Brian and I commented on how fabulous it is to have all the right gear and how that can really make the difference when you're spending time outdoors. I even got to use my new camera-specific day pack today, that came complete with it's own raincover. I'd love to be able to show you some great pictures of the hike that I took with my high tech digital slr and killer lens, but even though I had my precip rain jacket and precip rain pants and gortex boots and camalback hydration system and all the right base and mid layers, I forgot to bring an extra camera battery. Whoops.
The blackberry pics will have to do.
