Photos are Phixed

The light changed every moment as the sun went down.©backpackthesierra.comWell, it's been a lot of work, but we've managed to go through all of our thousands of Picasa photos and correct them for the glitch that Google somehow installed in all the vertical format photos.  Not fun--although in fairness to Picasa/Google, it was only about 2/3 of the photos that had to be adjusted. 
But that exercise also gave us the chance to look at a lot of photos...and that led to re-living all of those wonderful backpacking trips.  There were some good times there!
So in celebration of making the most of a bad thing, we've posted a few more of our favorite vertical format photos here.  We hope that they give you joy, and inspire you to get out and hike.
