We took advantage of a long weekend (3-days due to Labor Day) and camped in Arroyo Seco. Nice group of friends now known as "The Camping Family".

Nice hikes, swimming in cold water in the middle of intense heat was big part of our weekend. Of course, usually hot and clear skies leave almost no chance of photography for sunset or during the day.

But, as if part of a magic trick sunrise transformed scenes into real gems. Foggy mornings, and an "okay" (during the day) lake with mist raising from the water as if it was being boiled at sunrise, made me a happy photographer!
