Red River Gorge - Koomer Ridge Trail

f/7.1, 1/30, ISO 2500

Yesterday we went to the Red River Gorge for a 7.63 mile hike. Originally we planned for a 4 to 5 mile hike, but somehow we went a few more miles than expected. It took us 4.5 hours including breaks. We joked that this was our training for Appalachian Trail (2,180 miles!).

Being an avid runner, I thought I would be in great shape for this hike. My gluteus maximus (butt muscle, that is) is still in pain this morning. Lola, on the other hand, was a great hiking champ. 

By the way, Lola just turned 6 years old and today marks the 4th anniversary since I brought her home from the humane society. I can't ask for a better companion and best friend :)

During the hike, there was a few area along the stream and Lola couldn't get enough of swimming.

I can't decide which camera setting is more appropriate for taking pictures in the shade. On the left is "Auto" white balance and on the right is "cloudy". The pictures above (except the blue sky one) were taking with "cloudy" white balance, which made the green color more vibrant. However, the right one below looks like Lola turned into a Hulk-Dog.

On to more stretching.
Tomorrow I will be traveling north to Cincinnati for a friend's wedding, updates from the road then! (follow my updates at here Click)
