Hi I am new to backpacking, but I have done some camping,  looking for a way to expand my outdoor photography from the world everyone else  sees 

so I guess I am here to learn, and share my experiences of this coming spring and summer.

I would be up for a photo thread. I've got a few great images and a whole mess of mid-range photos.DSC_2479.thumb.JPG.0daf926be17ed4deda58bd2ac72487e2.JPG

Brooke learning how to find fish. Until this point it was pure 'magic' and fish just appeared when the rod was lifted.

Trail buddies come in all configurations. This is a Kern River Rattlesnake. The cousin to this snake is the Mojave Rattlesnake. These snakes are basically pink and blend well with Sierra granite. Here's the kicker...this snake was around 13".

Great Blue Heron on the Manzana River. The top knot is flattened in this photo.

Great idea to post photographs. Let's get a few more here and start re-generating interest.

Brooke posing on a local trail. Packs have her food, bowl and some medicine.

This is what I call "dog tired". Poor Brooke is game to follow me anywhere. However, I missed a junction and we ended up doing 14 miles. Not being UL, we were both worn out.

Sweet photos! Of course, I'd like to know if there are any fish in the pond.

its a small pond, don"t think its deep enough for the fish to make the winter.
