Early August at McBride Canyon

I’ve not taken a lot of pictures in the last two weeks because I’m trying to learn how to not drown myself in a kayak. I borrowed one from a brother-in-law and enjoyed it so that I bought one for myself. I practiced a few days in a pond at Spring Canyon and have been out on the main lake several times, but I’m still not comfortable enough to risk the camera, yet. I’m looking forward to taking photos from the water.

I have taken a few photographs from McBride Canyon during a couple of trips since the first of August and I thought I would share them with you. Enjoy!
