Zion National is a must see

Zion National Park: Where Beauty Abounds It was a wet morning as my wife and departed our hotel. On the drive up to Zion National I kept thinking, jeez, I almost left my waterproof jacket at home. I live in CA, and for the past several years we haven’t had much rain. I was tempted

Manfrotto MT055CXPRO3 carbon fiber tripod review When I bought this Manfrotto MT055CXPRO3 as a replacement to my aluminum one a year ago I bought it with the intention of getting more weight out of my hands.
