Couldn't resist putting up at least one photograph from our Sumpter trip. This was taken coming back on Monday. The Sumpter Trip should involve most of my November posts.

NIKON D700 1/400 second F/10.0 ISO 400 250 mm (35mm equiv.)

If they are anything like this then all should be good

@P J W Miller: This probably will end up being my favorite of the lot. The light was incredible. You should have seen us swerve off of the road; fortunately, there was a pull-out. (Some people save the best for last; not me!!)
