At least it was too hot for the rattlesnakes to be out and about!

    Thanks Vaughn. Kathy and I once scouted out a location in Rainier that we wanted to shoot at first light, went to sleep in the tent and both woke up spontaneously at about 4, in the darkness, hopped in the car and the timing worked out perfectly. This time maybe we'll set the clock.

    Everything is packed and ready to go. Out the door at 4 in the am tomorrow, for the long drive down. Wish me luck!

    Enjoy! If you head back up the coast on your way home, stop on by!

    No luck required, you have the skills and it is a turkey shoot.

    Just have fun!

    There is definitely that possibility.

    I was there two weeks ago and it was perfect...85 during the day and 50 at night. It was a bit breezy but not too bad. The week before I got there the park was hit by heavy rains and some of the canyons were still closed.

    Have a great trip and enjoy!

    Thanks Bob and Randy. Well, I'm going down with 100 sheets of 8x10, and lots of 120. If I run out, I'll paint!
