Day 212 of 365.

I had to include this photo because it encapsulates a really great experience I had. Trust me to take weeks to blog about it.

Anyway, Small Beer Press out of Massachusetts is my favorite small press; they put out excellent books and the fine literary 'zine Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet. So, these people are rock stars in my book. I made a point to visit the Small Beer Press office in Easthampton, MA this summer.

I was pleased to meet Jedediah Berry , editor at Small Beer Press and author of the excellent book The Manual of Detection . Not only was he kind enough to give my crew & I the tour, but he also joined us for lunch and lively conversation.

So, that was a really good day for me.

And, my photography will be in the 2011 edition of their Working Writer's Daily Planner . Thrilling!

Day 206 of 365.

This hike was the hardest one for me (so far, although I'd hate to meet one harder anytime soon), as we hiked 1.5 miles up a slide. This required more "climbing" than I like. Also, this hike included scary climbs up exposed rock with very gusty winds. My fear of heights was in overdrive and I nearly didn't make it. Then I did. Thanks to Dr. Nick & my father-in-law. I totally earned my pizza that night.

It was a profound experience. Having done something like that, something I never ever thought I'd be able to do, I start to wonder what else I can do.

I was shooting the flower for texture, and the butterfly alighted just as I pressed the button - he wasn't originally in the frame. How's that for serendipitous?

This is a bonus photo, just 'cause I thought this statuary was really excellent. This is the detail on a cannon at Fort Ticonderoga, NY.

Day 202 of 365.

After the previous day's hard hiking, Day 202 was for walking as little as possible, and contemplating the flowers.

Day 201 of 365.

I chose this one because this seal inset in the top of Giant Mountain in the Adirondacks Preserve marks the first High Peaks hike of the year; and Peak #4 for me. The hike up Giant is no picnic - 3000 feet over 3 miles with no warm-up hiking to the trail-head. This took us 3 hours. After stopping on this peak we continued to Rocky Ridge Peak, and after that went DOWN 5000 feet, in rain and on slippery rock faces. I could scarcely walk the next two days, but I felt rather accomplished anyway.
