Las Conchas and The Overlook, November 2009

My climbing buddy, Chuck Booten, and his girlfriend, Carrie Hoesli, came down from the Denver/Boulder area to visit us in New Mexico during the weekend of November 6-8, 2009.  It had actually been over a year since I'd seen Chuck.  Our last climb was a failed attempt on the Northwest Buttress of Capitol Peak in August 2008.  In addition to catching up with each other, Chuck got to meet Kaj, and we all got to meet Carrie!

During this trip, we spent a day at Las Conchas in the Jemez Mountains (about a 35 minute drive) and a day at the Overlook in White Rock Canyon (about a 15 minute drive).  I had been without a camera for the past two months (after my old, trusty Sony DSC-W7 died), but I had just received my new Canon S90 in the mail.  So, this was the first weekend for pics with the new camera.  I think the new camera passed the test, but let me know what you think.  Its inaugural pictures are below.
