I got out late and decided on Battleground Lake for a hike, and it never disappoints!  Almost nobody on the trail, and I love it that way.  I circled around the lake and then went to the outer trail system, which is always less crowded and feels remote.  I think I’ll be getting back into removing ivy again.

I spent a bit more time trying to get good pictures out of my Olympus TG-5 weatherproof camera, and it finally paid off!  I just need to use the histogram function and trust the LCD panel to tell me when the exposure is what I want!  I was almost ready to sell this camera but now it seems to be a keeper. 🙂  I guess you can be the judge of how these photos came out.
