New camera in use!

This Christmas, I bought my brother a starter camera kit, a Canon EOS 30D, with a good flash and lens (of his choosing). Here's one of the first pictures he took with it that he decided to share (he's the one on the left). Pretty fun stuff!

Lena Lake

Yesterday, my mom and I intended to hike up to Lower Lena Lake. But we didn't quite make it.

First, we took the wrong way, and ended up on the long way around on a forest road. After traveling along it for awhile, we saw that up ahead the road had been completely washed out. Oops. So then we had to turn around.

When we finally reached the turnoff to the Lena Lake trailhead, we realized it was too snowy to drive, so we decided to walk the mile in the snow to the trailhead. But the snow was getting sort of soft, so we kept sinking in and it took a little longer than expected.

When we got to the trailhead, it was mostly clear so we hiked for a couple of hours, but it just got too deep towards the top, so we had to turn back. Still, it was a lovely day, and a lovely hike, even if it was raining by the time we had to slog back through the snow on the road to get back to the car. That part was really cold.

We'll have to go back during the summer when it's not quite so crazy to hike in the Olympics. :)
