Point Reyes Backpack

Mike did a short two-day backpack last week, hiking 6 miles to Coast Camp from the Bear Valley trailhead and 6 miles back the next day. He was trying out a new backpack (the Osprey "Atmos 65." )

The verdict is still out on the backpack: Mike needs to consult with the experts at REI on a few points, and then we’ll see.

He carried the Olympus E-510 with the 12-60 lens over his shoulder. It didn’t seem so heavy going out, but coming back . . . too much! From now on, he’ll be taking the much smaller and lighter 14-42 kit lens.

Talk about your aches and pains! But the scenery was nice.
