Day 637 – Hike!
I used to lug my main camera and lenses everywhere. I scoffed when a photographer in Boise told me “i don’t bring out my big gun unless i’m going to the dance.” No, really, he said that.
Now it’s just me and my iPhone… and the beyond awesome Hipstamatic app.
The benefits of an incredibly wet spring linger up at elevation. There are wildflowers everywhere and the grasses in the meadow areas were positively lush. In Idaho at this time of year everything is dead and brown… and as explained to me, should be here as well. But there are still flowing springs and green grasses to be had up high. On the way down, Jim and i paused at a small bubbling stream and splashed icy water on our sweaty heads. I dug out a little dirt and built a teeny dam that would permit me to scoop two full hands worth of water and dunk my head. Livin’ large!
