I really needed a day on the river, my river, the Muddy Fork Cowlitz. And what a bluebird day to be there, too. All the little creeks were full to the brim with melt-water, the sky was intensely blue and the air warm and still, and I had a new camera to play with.
I purchased and installed a purist's app - Obscura 2, allowing me to shoot in DNG and manually control all the settings, but I am finding the native camera app to be simple, fun, and extremely high-quality.

I wanted to make it up to my campsite, which I call Tatoosh Low Camp - it's the lowest elevation in the Tatoosh Wilderness. Fortunately, the trail was easy to follow, the snow was mostly gone.
After a lunch of a chicken sandwich and Cheez-itz, I made my way along the trails and a little bit x-country to meet up with the road, then made my way back down to my truck.
Bonus shot - this last is of Hopkins Creek, along Silverbrook Rd, Randle, where I stopped to fill my water cans for the trip home. Delicious water! This is the untouched photo taken by my phone in the dusk. My Nikon would have not had enough light to capture an image. Wow!
