Just got home from a four day backpacking trip in the Adirondack Mountains. My friend Ryan (and his dog) and I covered 26 miles, 5800 feet of elevation gain, and summited the second tallest mountain in NY (Algonquin Peak, 5,114 feet). The terrain was extremely rugged and hard to hike on, but we had an absolute blast. I didn't have enough batteries for the X-T20 yet, so I begrudgingly dragged the D810 out with me along with my 50 1.8 and 20 1.8.

Now, these aren't my best photos ever. The weather didn't cooperate for landscape photos, so I mostly just documented the trip. But I lugged the DSLR along and put in the effort, so I figured I'd share some photos. At times I felt like I was shooting product ads for some of these companies (MSR, Merrell, Garmin).

Very interesting photos! From an old guy who no longer hikes. Alas.
