Once I got back, Justin helped pitch the tent
in the backyard in order for it to dry. Apparently he thought
it was hilarious that I got caught in the rain while camping.
Initially I was planning to recap my outdoor adventures on the blog; giving a day-by-day account of my bear encounters, photo adventures, and front country camping experiences... But then one day as I was driving from one hiking trail to another, the thought occurred to me: who cares! (sorry mom, your vote doesn't count on this one). Besides, now that we're home I've been reminded that my time will be better spent doing any of 10 million other things; like preparing for my inevitable return to work, prepping for my wedding shoot in 10 days, wrapping up summer projects, etc. But for those of you at least remotely interested, I've posted a small handful of shots from the trip here. Once I find time to go through them all I'll add more; but those are the ones that stood out at a glance.
On the trail to Mouse Creek Falls
With the latest estimate being 2 bears per square mile
(1500 total for the park), I guess I was bound to see at least
a couple of black bears during a 5 day visit.
As for what V and Justin did while I was camping and what we did together when I returned, V is putting together a photo summary of those "adventures." I will update the blog with those photos once she has a moment to sort through them.
And last but not least, Justin has been busy yet again filling out his portfolio. Just before our excursion began, he had a shoot with a budding photographer friend of ours, Terri Hughes (her husband shot our wedding, in case the name sounds familiar). One glance at her portfolio and it is obvious that Terri is immensely talented. We wish her the best with her business endeavors and thank her again for the opportunity to capture Justin on film. If you have a moment, fill free to click here to check out Terri and Sam's website. As for Justin's photos, while I'm sure her galleries will rotate, for now you can find him in the Portrait section, images #6 and #7. Enjoy.
