Hi Pentaxian friends.

About two weeks ago, my daughter and her boyfriend visited us. We visited several places in Southern California and stayed one night in Palm Springs. The first thing we wanted to do in the morning, after breakfast of course, was to spend a few hours at the pool. The temperature was around 95 Deg F. My daughter now lives in Maryland, and couldn't resist the pool in January.

My wife, Anne, didn't particularly want to sit at the pool and drove to Tahquitz Canyon. She had the Pentax K2000 with the 18-55mm kit lens installed. Tahquitz Canyon is located just a few miles from downtown, in the mountain foothills, where Tahquitz Creek and various tributaries of Palm Canyon Wash have carved narrow canyons, all containing year round water that sustains many groves of California fan palm trees. Known collectively as the Indian Canyons, since most of the land is part of the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation, this region offers excellent and varied hiking, over desert hillsides or along the cool, palm-lined gorges.

Anne isn't as crazy about photography as I am, although she desperately wants the white K2000. She took some pictures using the various preset modes on the camera. For those that still doubt that the K2000 is a great little bridge camera, look at her pictures.

I think that Anne and the K2000 area a good combination and the proof is in the pudding, or in the pictures...whatever! Who came up with that? What's the pudding got to do with anything!

Thank you for reading,
