    Bear proofing is definitely required in the Sierras. Here in the coastal range mountain lions are the primary concern.

    Great series Raven. Wish I still had it in me to go packing for 8 days in the mountains. One day hiking the coastal range trail is pretty much my limit these days.

    The last shot is definitely my favorite.

    2 takes this round. Love the arc in the clouds. I wish the lake was more of a feature though.

    I like aspects of all three of those panorama shots. Cant really pick a favourite. What a lovely location.
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
    - the fun's in finding them

    Hmm, Like the third one better on my home monitor which is calibrated. Also, I just realized I said, "low rain risk" when your series features an obvious storm:-)

    High rain risk on this day. Though it was raining somewhere we were lucky enough to stay dry.

    I guess the difference in rain is more a case of sudden down pours versus long drenching rains. We get plenty of severe thunderstorms and t tornadoes and a tent helps only slightly then. In my youth I have spent 2-3 days hiking and camping in wet boots and tents in the Appalachians. I am just getting a lot less hardy in my middle age.

    Thanks. I like them all as well, but I am sort of thinking that the photoshop treatment of the colors in #2 is not to my taste, may try again with Olympus software.

    I saw some signs of mountain lions, but have never seen one in the wild despite having totaled up several weeks in the wilderness so far.

    Two of the three have rain in them, and it at least sprinkled on me every day. #3 shows the trailing edge of a devastating hail storm that flattened everything in its path with an inch deep of hail, which itself was quite large at times. These elevations get about 40 inches of precipitation per year, but with the caveat that it is quite possible to get an inch of rain in an hour, while simultaneously having a relative humidity of 30%, which goes back to 15% when the rain is done. So things dry pretty quickly.

    It's big news when water falls from the sky in the SF bay area. I wish we got more rain around here.

    Hey, we just got .25 inches in June! Getting a little greedy aren't we? After all we are in the "brown" season.

    This is the time of year to be in Arizona... Monsoon! (+Dust storm!) Makes for magnificent sunsets, and fun landings at Sky Harbor.

    So rainy in Atlanta this year that we are possibly having the wettest year ever. We are around 16 inches over our norm so far. From Yahoo News, "Through July 8, the official site at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport recorded 41.28 inches of rain. At that pace, Atlanta would reach 79.72 inches by December 31, eclipsing the highest marks to date -- 71.18 in 1948 and 69.43 in 2009."
