I did two short backpacking trips this past week in Rocky Mountain National Park. I tend to go by myself since getting a group organized for snowy backpacking is harder than you'd think.

A bit more snow than I had anticipated.

On a small island in the Stockholm archipelago. Walking around the island took maybe 10 minutes. Olympus TG-4, 4,5 mm, f/8, 1/50 s, ISO 100

Nice! What kind of kayak is that? I've never seen one with a much larger bow than stern. What are the benefits of a design like that?

It's a Point 65 XP18, 1 fast tourer kayak from Swedish kayak maker Point 65. I was unable to find much info on it on their home page (nothing at all on their Swedish page, and just pictures and a video clip on their English page, so it might be discontinued), but IIRC the big bow was about having leg room for working hard, and it was also to stop it from heading into wind when paddling in windy conditions.

I don't know if there's an ideal place to get food poisoning, but this place out in the wilderness was certainly not it. Lesson learned: Check the expiry date of freeze dried food too...

A better night, but less picturesque surroundings.

Not exactly gourmet food, but it fills the belly...

Just a photocopier scan of a 30 year old print of our ski touring group. Only memories now.

These two are also photocopy scans old old prints from a long time ago.
These are from a cave camp in Nettlebed New Zealand. This was the first ever camp at the "Soft Rock Cafe"
I thought these may be different as most people have probably not camped underground kilometers in.

For anyone interested we helped TV New Zealand make a video of this cave link below to a youtube low res version.

I like backpacking, away from crowds and "popular spots" so often that leads to off trail bush bashing. Going light is essential for me and Micro 4/3 allows me to take a camera and a couple of small lenses (primes) or compact zooms
In the Snowy Mountains of Australia, mid summer, December

The "insectageddon" people seem to report on almost everywhere? Insect numbers seem to have plummeted in recent years in many places...
Yes it seems to be true. when we moved in to our current house there were many spiders moths and snails etc. I have seen no snails in many years, no more moths around lights and hardy any cicadas. When I was young cicadas covered the trunks of trees now I hear them but hardly see them.

Very sad and the younger people do not even know what is missing and do not believe us when we tell them the numbers that were around.
