Day 1

Day 1:  Uinta Trail Head to The Chain Lakes
  6+ hours hiking
  7.5 miles
  2500'+ elevation gain
  4 rain storms

      Also, I only packed my iPhone 4s for weights sake. I do not love the picture quality but It works at only 4.9 ounces. (My Pentax is K100D is 16.25oz with out the battery or any lens!) The iPhone did a fair job but Digital zoom will never replace optical in my life time. There is an app that is fun to play with called 360PANORAMA. it takes 360 degree panoramas. Here are the Panos from day 1: Sheep Bridge, Lower Chain Lake

This picture is proof that you will not die horribly if you electronic devices are left on.

35 LBS of everything you need to survive in the woods. This time I carried extra water (hoping it would ease the altitude sickness) and too much food. At least it is bright orange.

The pay off.
