Mary Kay knows Jen and I bring our cameras when we all hike. She knows she’ll be asked to model for us.
We weren’t disappointed!
Mary Kay on our hike late this afternoon.
Jen joined us on our family Bump & Grind hike this morning.
Jen took this photo of us.
Each year someone Xmas decorates a bush on the Bump & Grind.
For those who don’t know this is the top of the Bump & Grind. This is the first time I’ve hiked to the top since this trail has been closed to hikers to protect the supposedly breeding Big Horn sheep.
Turn around point on hike.
Love, love, love this photo taken by my newest best friend, John O'Connell.
There were 5 of us who got up early (after little sleep) and hiked the Bump & Grind early this morning. There is a weekend event going on here in the desert and throughout today many more friends will arrive. Will be interesting to see who joins on tomorrow morning’s hike.
Early morning hike on the Bump & Grind.
The light was just too good to pass this up. Thanks Eric.
Eric, John, Katya and Melissa jumping for me and the incredible morning we had.
Connie wasn't feeling great and turned back during our hike.
Late afternoon on the B & G. We met some friends with the same intent in mind.
We wondered if we'd meet Mario on the hike as he is a regular.
Mario took this picture of Melissa, Jen and me on my first day hiking in heat.
And on our way down, guess who had a day off......Diana walking with her hubby, Brian.
Jen and I met Mario who was coming down the Bump & Grind.
I asked Jen if she wanted to go on a late hike. I like when someone is available and spontaneous like Jen. We brought our cameras and had a ball.
Took this photo into Topaz Adjust and clicked on "I Feel Lucky." I got lucky.
Jen is becoming very comfortable with my directing her in front of the camera. In teaching Jen the little I know about photography I explained how my camera's flash would stop her motion while walking towards me even though the light was very low. I had a fast shutter speed to kill some of the ambient light and show the rosy sky.
First time I've used my i-Phone flashlight app. It sure came in handy as we misjudged our turn around time. Playing with our cameras switched our focus (no pun intended).
