Forest Road Hike

Hike Distance: 8.7 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 197.4 miles

Elevation Gain: 1140 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 28183 feet

The last hiking day of the month and it was a strong finish, probably my best ever for both distance and elevation!  A bit of drizzle but no significant rain.  I’m happy I could get out today as I had significant stomach issues last night. 😦

Today I decided to try out my new Canon G9X Mark II camera, and was very pleased with the photos. 🙂  This is the camera that will be with me on the PCT so I want to start learning to use it and find out any nuances.  I love the weight, a mere 7.3 ounces.  The detail in the images is impressive, with its 20Mp sensor.  The biggest issues are its minimal zoom, avoiding the touch screen with my thumb during operation and lack of any environmental weather sealing.

A great day to be hiking!
