|Marshes, Self-Portrait - Sacramento Valley 2012|
Once back at the Grey Lodge parking lot, the birders set off under a bright blue sky upon the hiking trail curving through the marshes.
Very cold . . . (that is to say, cold for California.) In the low 30's, with a mean little breeze blowing.
In spite of his handwarmers, Mike's right hand fingers were starting to go numb.
Hm . . . OK, operate the D90's on and off switch with the thumb. And, you don't really need to feel the shutter button per se, just know where it is.
After finishing the hike and leaving Grey Lodge Mike cranked the heater up in the car and slowly thawed out.
