Unfortunately, we didn't find anything too interesting to photograph (at lot of the old mining buildings had barbed wire fences surrounding them), but I broke out the macro to try and get a few detailed shots.
Now that we each have our own cameras (I received my Canon Rebel T3i as a gift this past Christmas), there's a lot less work involved in photographing our hikes. He usually carries his landscape lens and I have my trusty macro, so there's no need to switch out lenses. It saves us a lot of time and quite frankly, there's a lot less fighting over the camera. Two cameras = marital bliss.
We found this great little picnic spot that overlooked San Jose and the surrounding cities. The weather was nearly perfect for winter hiking; cloudy and high 50's.
All in all, we covered over five miles of trails and promptly stuffed our faces with Chipotle and Caveman Cookies afterwards. Bring on the rain.
