So I just got back from a wonderful day hike up to Park Butte fire look out in the north Cascades. Perfect weather, sunny and warm. Hardly a cloud in the sky. You're so close to Mt. Baker it feels like you can reach out and grab it. A great hike.
So why is there no image? Well, this is a little embarrassing but I'll tell it any way. I got my camera out to take some pictures and got a warning that there was no card. No problem, I'll just get out a spare. Oops, no spare. So there I was with everything to make a photograph except something to record it on. Oh well.
When I was packing up this morning I made sure I had spare batteries but didn't bother to throw in a spare card because I knew that the card (not) in the camera had plenty of space on it. What I didn't do was actually look in the camera to confirm that there was in fact a card in there. So from now on always double check everything before you go out to make photographs regardless of the destination.
It still was a great day. I may not have any pictures but I do have some wonderful memories.
