My teen-aged daughter and I took a 2 night backpacking trip into www.nps.gov/romo (external link) Mon-Wed of this week.

My primary goal was to spend time with her while she still allows it, spend time in nature was my secondary goal and photography took third position. Despite this, in the short time there I used a battery and a half (I use live view a lot for flowers) and about 500 photos total LOL. I limited my gear to my Canon 60D, my 100f2.0 and 50f1.8 lenses, and my cell phone stood in for wider angle photos. I will say that for me the 50mm was a waste, I would leave it at home next time and instead take my ancient single-element 450 close up lens, which works better with the 100f2 than it has any right to do. At any rate, all photos will either be from the cell phone or the 100f2.

I'll post a few more as I get time. It is a gorgeous place if you can get away from the massive crowds, I think it is the second most visited national park in the US, behind the Great Smokey Mountain National Park, which is larger area-wise. Trail Ridge Road is bumper to bumper in places, a 15-30 min wait at the entrance even mid-week and they were turning people away at the gift shop parking lot at the top. It is flower and mosquito season right now, about as warm as it gets up there. Flower season being the main reason I wish I had my close up lens.
