    A year in the Red River Gorge

    I did not know where to post this, since it is not really backpacking (only one night), but a lot of day hikes. I have done a lot of day hiking in the Red River Gorge in the last couple of years (about 35 days in the last 15ish months). I owe a lot of inspiration for the following photos and...

Rented the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 and left town Thursday afternoon to beat the crowds and take advantage of the a moonless, cloudless night. Headed to Hanson's Point in the Red River Gorge, one of the best views in the area. Met a...
