I’m sure everyone in Giles County breathed a huge collective sigh of relief when this bridge was shut down, and it’s replacement opened up.

on 8/10 I went higher.... to a place that I did not know, Guagrapamba waterfalls, amazing place!
At the North tip of Pichincha, in a cloud forest...
First we left Quito; the airport was at 2800m (~9,000 ft) so we climbed a good 400m more to get to the paramo
Norte de Quito
The end of town

Then we arrived to the beautiful paramo, were the clouds from the coast fill the canyons and bathe the mountain sides
NorOccidente

In less than 30 minutes we were in the amazing valley of NONO, where yu can find naturally carbonated water springs
Valle de Nono
Drying corn in Nono

From then a few minutes more to Guagrapamba (The place of the bull)
Bromelia
The cascades feed the river you can see at the bottom of the canyon, we had to climb a good 100m, and then descend 300m to the river

Cascada Guagrapamba

After a decent hike, the clouds starting coming in the afternoon (~3pm) and by the time we reached the base camp you could not see anything
Clouds are coming!

PS. The area is here :

Great honouring of WPD, Phil.

For my part, it may have been the only day in months I did not take picture!

The Great Road began as a series of Native American pathways that the settlers linked together.  Improvements over the years created what became highway route US-11, The Carolina Road.

A group of re-enactors makes several camps along the way every year, doing demonstrations of what pre-revolutionary war life was like for those who traveled and lived along the Great Road.

It gave me an excuse to test out a Minolta SRT 101 with the W.Rokkor-HG 35/2.8 on Kodak Ektar 100.

The Maxxum 4 was one of the lesser models in the range, and came with either a 50mm f1.8, or the 28-80mm f3.5-5.6.  These were all taken with the latter, but the lens has some problems.  The AF won’t work past the 60mm setting, and the front element group is a bit wobbly, so I planned on shooting it in manual mode all the time.  Luckily, the Maxxum 4 remembers all settings when you turn the camera off, so I didn’t have to worry about forgetting to turn off the AF.

With the camera sporting a load of Kodak BW400CN, I took off to nowhere in particular, winding up at the Booker T. Washington National Monument in Franklin County, VA.  It is on the plantation where he was born into slavery, and nine years later was freed by the Emancipation Proclamation.  He went on to build the Tuskegee Institute, and become a strong voice in the struggle for equal rights.

Below is a sampling of the test photos.
