  1. Great 19 min vid on the Colorado and fantastic music selection. What is that music titled? Great job. tnx. ff

    1. Thanks Frederick! It's called Semper Fidelis (Always Faithful) by Mark Isham and is the filmscore from the film Rules of Engagement.

  2. Great post Eric. I'm curious what camera you used on the Colorado Trial hike? I'm hiking the trail this summer and would like any advice on the matter. Thanks.

    1. Thanks Curt! I used a Canon S100. It's lightweight but still takes great pictures. Canon has come out with a few new models recently. I've heard Sony also has nice point and shoot cameras. I took my photos in RAW and edited with Lightroom. Let me know if you have any other questions. Have a fun hike!
