Just to backtrack a little bit. We had a wonderful trip up to Yosemite about a month back. We had good time hiking some of the trails and seeing the sights. Even though it was somewhat cold and some of the hikes were closed, it was still fun to spend time with family and this has given us some insight into what we would like to do on some future trip to the area. Because Matt has a love-affair with panoramas, here are some of our pictures:

Matt's personal favorite, and also taken from our favorite hike. This is upper Yosemite Falls hike with a view of the falls and Half Dome in the distance:

We had a fun trip. The time went by fast and we were back home before we knew it, but we have the pictures and the momories to last. Perhaps more pictures to come (but not likely).

    Wow! Those are some fantastic shots! Although I wouldn't expect any less from you two! Someday, when I come see your new house, I fully expect to see original artwork all over your walls :)

    And about the the extended warranty! Who knows though, yours could be fine. Plus, we let Ashlyn play with it a lot, and when I say "we" I mean "I". Not that Ashlyn could un-waterproof it though. We should have it back by tuesday, and they didn't charge us a dime, so maybe olympus isn't so bad? I'll let you know my opnion of them after we take it swimming again!

    Holy long comment!

    Thanks for the advice, Heather. Luckily our children can't really handle the cameras. And Jason, we took those with our Canon and then used Photostitch to put them together.
