    The kids thanked me for having a slower relaxing holiday where I wasn't pushing them into the car as much as NZ. Ironic and I'll see if they're singing the same tune after 7hr's in the car between Sequoia & Las Vegas.

    Let's see if the photos post. I have really dodgy internet access here at the Pines Resort Yosemite though.
    Glad you had a relaxing day. Your schedule is pretty grueling. I hope your kids know that this is an adventure of a lifetime.

    Internet access in most national parks is pretty dodgy as they are typically at the far end of a DSL switch. Vegas is a different story.

    Post away.

    Little blue fella

    Here is an Eastern Tailed Blue butterfly. Tried to post this Monday and couldn't, made it today. To give you an idea how small the little 'bugger' is, that is a Dandilion flower it is on. Love the resolution of the D7100.
    Taken with the Tammy 70-300 (non macro one) 60th Anniv. lens, not the Bugma. Minimum focus 5'. Still able to see wing scale detail.

    I grabbed a beaut butterfly photo today with the 24-70 and D800 as I think it had been damaged and wasn't flying well. My internet access is so slow I don't think I can upload photos though. No foul on the cross post Falcoln, I'll take it you were testing the photo upload situation for me

    We did Kings Canyon today and I was pleasantly surprised to find my 4 hr google maps time estimate was significantly over cooked - probably as I measured from Yosemite Valley instead of where we were staying 15 miles south of the Yosemite Park entrance. We therefore had plenty of time to methodically cover Kings Canyon short of doing any lengthy bush walks.

    I think I snagged some cracker shots which I hope to sort tonight ready to post tomorrow when I get tolerable net access.

    We enjoyed the park very much and even did the Boyden cave. The cave was very nice for an intimate long cave, far less formation than our Aussie Naracourte cave but we were much closer to everything which made up for it. The guide was very personable but I didn't have cash ready to tip him which I noticed the local in our group did with a very subtle handshake which left cash in the guide's hand.

    We're staying just inside Sequoia National Park and had to strip everything (toothbrushes and water bottles included) out of our car so the bears don't tear it to bits, I even had to sign a damage waiver.

    Edit sorry for backdating photos but I've uploaded them now I have better net access. The shot inside Boyden Cave is of a Roosevelt era economic stimulus project from the 1920's where blokes where paid to build structures up to and inside this cave.

    Yep, gotta watch those bears. They can get very aggressive and violent. Even the smaller bears like Black bears are dangerous. The large grizzlys' doubly so.
    Sorry, didn't realize I had posted in the wrong forum until I couldn't find the pic, later.

    I've gone back over the last couple days and added photos to those old posts now that the net is working from this hotel and the jeff has restored functionality after the server migration.

    Here's a teaser from San Fran. I couldn't believe how cheap grog is in the states even though K1W1 had said I'd be pleasantly surprised. Ssil2000 from this forum unfortunately gave me a taste for good bourbon when I did him a favour and he gave me a bottle of this stuff in Aus. I saw it way up on the top shelf in a San Fran liquor store and bought it for the benign price of $40 + tax (about 1/2 the aussie price). It was funny watching the store owner make a big deal of getting a ladder to get it down. Now this heathen is sculling it in quantity mixed with coke - but at least I have a big smile on my dial

    Woodford is a nice one. Lots of new bourbons on the market these days, not all from Kentucky.

    Great pics, especially the falls, that one calls for a wall-sized poster.
    Taking a bit more time and seeing what your passing through is, I think, better than rushing and trying to get it all in: "If this is Tuesday, this must be Belgium."

    I've always been a single malted Scotch fan, but L&G will due in a pinch. My Colleagues in Japan were always glad to see me show up with a 30 year old Glenfiddich (made possible by a generous bonus system). On a lean year we'd enjoy a younger 18-20 year old...

    ... yes I'm still talking Scotch!

    Glad to see the Yosemite pics finally posted. Look forward to the continuing saga.
