This last weekend, we went on two hikes that totaled about ten miles. Both hikes were flat walks along beautiful rivers, so the distance wasn't bad. Here are some of my favorite pictures. The first picture is the best result of experimentation with a new toy: a CPL filter. The golden rod and the lizard were interesting sights along the way. The last shot is of the Ocoee River. Its hard to see, but the water flow has been sculpted with cement and man-made boulders. The 1996 Atlanta Olympic whitewater events were held here. Apparently the natural river was not challenging enough!
