May, 2012 from GoHike (lots of photos)

Postby gohike » Sun Jun 17, 2012 4:57 pm

Sorry for the delay, but I had a really busy month of May. Ten (actually 11) days in Yellowstone, 11 days climbing and two big trips to pack for, plus I had to train the new web journalist for RMC.

I'll keep it simple, no report just lots and lots of photos.
The full trip is online for May 08-15, 2012 - http://www.shumwayphotography.com/gallery/23150412_kzFkM4
The full trip is online for May 19 & 20, 2012 - http://www.shumwayphotography.com/gallery/23150429_6SgVF5
Make the jump/s to go through the online gallery/s, I ask that you leave comments/criticism or at least give your favorites a thumbs up... THANKS!

If you have questions, ask... I published the camera information with each image and have added full keywords to share just about anything you would want to know about the images.

Happy shooting

Oh yeah the May 19 & 20 trip was officially my 100th trip to the park, and I brought a friend along for her first trip to the park, so I played the tourist game, and had a great time.
