This is a photo I borrowed because my pics from the 2005 trip all were lost when the last PC died. To my credit, I had backup that died as well. I am so stoked to do this trek again. It was epic, to say the least.
This is a poor substitute. I can't wait to let my hair go wild, smell sea salt and bull kelp in the sun, and to photograph sear stars, anemone, and all other squishy sea critters to my heart's content. Oh, I can't wait. YAY!
