As posted previously, I dropped my external hard drive and lost almost all my photos. Luckily, I have found some photos from my BiBe trip in April 2006. I had considerably less photographic skill at that time. These are taken with a point and shoot (my first digital camera, Canon Powershot G3). I have some photos on film that I will try to digitize.

The following are photos from a Big Bend Trip with an itinerary created by TJ Avery. Y'all have asked me to post some photos, so here ya go!

Nice colors!

P.S.  Don't forget to check out the Image Resizer options before uploading.  Don't bother re-posting any of the above, as I'll resize them and reload them to the BigBendGallery site in a minute or two, but for future pics, those with limited bandwidth would greatly appreciate it.  Even though the BBC software resizes the pics to no more than 600 pixels wide, the file being downloaded is still the full-size version.
