It was a fine weekend in New England. Saturday started out overcast, so we opted to do some hiking. I was really looking forward to using my new camera gear. Check this out, an MOA member upgraded his equipment to Nikon and he offered this package to me at a price I could not pass up. It just arrived on Friday. I've already ordered a bigger card and an extra battery.
I've not even tried the big lens yet. The 18-200 is just fine and dandy! This is my first DSLR, I felt I'd finally maxed out the functionality of my Canon SD750.
Camera over my shoulder we headed up Pack Monadnock, the oldest and busiest park in NH. Not too busy Saturday, maybe because it's not officially opened. The weather, in the 60's was perfect for hiking. And the views at the top were very nice. Kevin even spotted two workers in the cell tower, making for an interesting picture.
We were a little antsy to get out on the bikes today; we headed Southeast toward the Quabbin Resevoir in Western MA. I decided to stay off the highway, and we tooled through some of the small towns along Rte 2A. It was just so nice to be out for a ride with all the spring colors! I hardly even minded filling up for $17 OMG!
We enjoyed the sights at the Quabbin, and I tried out the new camera

And we finished things off the right way! Mmmm Coffee Oreo
