Penolta - If it will make you feel any better, one of my dogs dug into a yellowjacket nest when we were hiking at Little Stony. She got about 2 dozen stings, and I got about a dozen! So we were "hot" for a while
Why would that make me feel any better? The more lush your surroundings, the more lurking hazards there can be. I hope you use insect repellant and carry a supply of antihistamines with you for such incidents. So far I have been sensitized by repeated exposure earlier in my life to salt-marsh mosquitos, imported fire ants, and ticks. Multiple stings from wasps and bees can do it too, so best to be prepared. If allergic reactions develop and get out of hand they can be life-threatening.

All I can say is that sure looks cool and comfortable. I've just spent 2 days wandering where there are no trees, and one day in a warmer, lower area that had lots of various pine trees. Part of the area I was hiking through had been burned in 1992 and has no shade - so also hot. Your pictures are awesome!

Henrik - Glad you like them. Yours are quite nice, and will get better with more practice too (I take MANY photos to get a few good ones...). Yes, I do have a small tripod that fits easily in my knapsack - great for taking out on long trails. Will look forward to seeing more of your work posted!

MtMan - thanks! It is fun to look at the range of perspectives - glad you enjoy them.

Penolta - just a little attempt at humor on my part. (sorry that it was not too funny...) Thanks for the medical warning - I am a bit sensitive to stings, and do try to remember to carry along some meds.

Harriet - Sounds like some fascinating places, with many photographic challenges. Will look forward to seeing the results!

Rodney - thanks! Usually our waterfalls are down to trickles by this time of year, but it's been a wetter than usual summer.
