The Chief

Yesterday, my sister and I hiked The Chief, a beautiful mountain peak just outside the city. I promised a bunch of you I’d post a few photos, so here they are! Enjoy the weekend everyone!

    i shoulda taken a photo of it from the bottom so you could see how high it is, its a pretty good workout that’s for sure!

    what camera did you shoot these with?

    What did you shout? :)

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      absolutely nothing (which was one of the suggestions haha), it was so beautiful, we kinda just stood there in silence. ate lunch and then laid on our backs and watched the clouds roll by, it was amazing.

        for those that don’t know – the suggestions i am referring to are from the discussion on our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/booooooom) about what i was supposed to yell when i got to the top.

    I have always wanted to meet a squirrel. Sux those little fella’s aren’t here in Australia.

    • Kyle

      I could be wrong but I think that’s actually a chipmunk. squirrels don’t usually have those type of stripes! cute buggers

  • Hotpulp

    chipmunk!

  • lapetitefaon

    Insanely jealous, thinking I may live on the wrong coast…the first photo is adorable.

      you have to see the northwest at some point, its more beautiful in person

    Chipmunk? Even better! Loved that show as a kid.

    I love how the mountains in the background make that chipmunk look even tinier than it already is. Also, you look cute. :)

  • emily

  • andy

    can you please find out what camera was used? i’ve been looking for a decent point&shoot and these photos look ace.

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      i dont know what model my sister has but if you want a point and shoot you can’t go wrong with a Canon G10 or a Panasonic LX3

  • http://www.chickiedee.com RobbieLee

    I love the image of you feeding the little chipmunk! So precious!

  • Shelley

    Love the random snowman…I love finding weird stuff, in weird places…beautiful mountain too!
