As luck would have it, I think I’ve got the best campsite in the entire park. Lucky #13 has a great view of the lake. I don’t know how the spot was open. Superstitious folks I guess.
Yesterday, after setting up camp, I rushed back into Phoenix for a Photo Expo and sold all my camera equipment (aside from my new camera and my trusty carbon-fiber tripod). My thoughts are that in a year or so, they will have a camera of the quality of my old 1Ds, but in the size – and more importantly, weight – of my new camera. I still have mental reservations but my back is thanking me already.
