Kauai, Hawaii

A beautiful fall day on the island of Kauai. Light rain in the morning with the clouds giving way to the sun and blue skies by the early afternoon. One of the best things that I liked about Kauai was the ability to just drive to another part of the island if it was raining somewhere. Rarely could I not find some sun.

This image was taken during a zip-line adventure that Jenn and I took on our second day on the island. The tour was based in the northern part of the island and was great fun with stunning views and a great group of people.

So just what do you do after backpacking for 2 days in the summer, climbing almost 2000ft in elevation over a distance of just under 2 miles with no trail!? Forget setting up the tent, strip off and jump in the closest body of water!

Taken on my birthday in 2005, late fall is one of my favorite times of the year to visit Yosemite. The summer crowds are gone, the weather is constantly changing, and the colors are more diverse in the forest.

Even a rainy day at Lake Tahoe can give you some good opportunities for pictures. This image was taken from the boat launch at Cave Rock looking out towards the California side of the lake.
