I got the film back from my backpacking trip. A roll of 36 and a roll of 24 Fuji Superia 400. So its going to take me awhile to get everything scanned. I got through a bit more then half of the first roll though. The trip was lots of fun. I got up and was delayed a little bit by the little man (not that I mind). I swung by and picked up my friend Field and we drove out together to Paw Paw, MD to start the hike along the C&O. We started out at the Paw Paw tunnel. Its over half a mile long and really, really dark in the middle (flashlights mandatory). From there the canal cuts through the mountains for another half a mile or so before it comes out and parallels the Potomac again. The C&O meanders next to the Potomac getting closer and further from the river. There were tons and tons of wild flowers that were just about to bloom, and plenty that had. I’ll get in to the rest of the story as I get the pictures scanned to post as what I have scanned only gets us to about halfway through the first day. One note, my OM-1n’s meter has been acting up badly so quite a few of the pictures ended up being overexposed. Not all of them, but enough to really be annoying. I did just get another OM-1 (sorry honey, but it was cheap at least). It needs a new prism, light seals and the back needs replacing for cosmetic reasons, but the meter is dead on accurate and mechanically it works fine. Also fortunately I have everything I need to recondition it (including a new prism) from a parts camera.

Saying that the skies were clear and blue would likely be an understatement.
Also a couple of cherry blossom pictures from before the hike.
