I went hiking on Mt. Rainier on Saturday. We took the Sourdough ridge hike and went up to Dega Peak. It was a clear, sunny day and it was cool in the mountains. A great day for a long hike.

I took a lot of really breathtaking pictures. I'm hoping to stitch some of the pictures together using hugin into giant panorama pictures. :-) As klicrai noted, most of my pictures are of mountains and sky, not people.

I was also sunburned over my upper arms and face. I didn't put on any sunblock because I didn't think of it. I might've thought of it had the sunblock I put in my back the last time this happened to me still had been there. But the TSA confiscated that a few months ago, so it wasn't there to use now.

Anyway, between the hours of exposure and the 7000 less feet of atmosphere, I was sunburned. Not horribly, even though it does cover a lot of skin.

Nope. In fact, I forgot to bring all the food I bought for the hike. :-/
