Winter Camping

February 23, 2012  •  1 Comment

The last month I've taken two winter camping trips in the Porcupine Mountains.   The first trip was quite the challenge in that the temperatures, and the wind were unusually- for this year- difficult.  The second trip the challenge was the additional three feet of snow that had fallen since the first trip! In both trips photography was tricky.  I wanted to take several lenses and my good tripod but it was such a struggle with additional weight.  Everything needed to winter camp is heavier than summer and takes up more space.  And then, even keeping the camera dry and usable is difficult.  I would have liked to have had a lot more equipment but I had to limit myself.  On the first trip I had only my D80 and a 35mm prime.  The second trip I took the D80 and went with the kit 18-105 lens.  I carried my heavy Slik tripod the first trip, and then went with the much lighter- but no where near as sturdy- Slik traveling tripod the second trip.  Links to the two trip reports are below:

Amazing pictures and narrative. Roger is envious, Karen (being the wimp she is) likes the secondhand experience. Seriously, the scenery is truly breathtaking and makes one realize how boring palm tress and sandy beaches are. We may like to complain about our seasons but each and every one has its own unique quality as you have clearly shown.

We look forward to your next outdoor adventure.
