It has been a month since Nina and I got engaged so we decided to celebrate with a hike and spent yesterday at Mount Tammany with some sandwiches, our cameras, and a whole lot of water. We took the Red Dot Trail up and came upon a great viewpoint about 1/3 of the way up. I had my canon ESO 5DIII with the Canon 24-70mm 2.8 II lens. I found myself wishing I has gone with my 16-35mm 2.8 when I saw what a great view there was at the top, but next time I will just have to suck it up and bring both. I always go with the 24-70mm when I do no know what I am in store for and can only bring one lens to save space and weight and it never disappoints.
About 2 miles later, we ended up at the top and ate some lunch and took in the view, loving the fact that it was 75 degrees in mid-October. I had to climb down and get a photo of my feet hanging off even though I forgot my Merrells and had to hike with my running sneakers. We took the Blue Dot Trail on the way down, which is the more mellow one, and we were glad that we did with the shape that our legs were in. I highly recommend taking the Red Dot Trail up since it is very steep and rocky at points and much easier to navigate while ascending rather than descending. As always, there is nothing like spending a day in the woods with my camera to make my weekend amazing and put me in the best mood.
I am so excited for Halloween and all of the upcoming sessions I have with clients throughout the Fall. I still have some weekends available until Christmas so reach out if you are interested!
