    Here are my shots. I forgot the polarizing filter for the 18-200, I only had it for the 10-20 but forgot also my ring make it fit on the Nikon.

    The are mostly snapshots, and I'm not necessarily posting the best ones, but the ones that shows the park the best.

    1- We slept east of the park, taking a trail from the road and camping where we had no clue if a crazy native would come and shoot us (it was kinda sketchy), we woke up and discovered our spot was quite nice!!!

    Saw some animals far away, 200 was not enough to get something good, this is cropped... oof but that's all I had.

    This is the pass itself, looking on the "other side" where you can'T go by car.

    Nice pics, that construction on the road to the sun was a pain in the ass eh?

    We didn't have enough time and were to hired to hike by the time we got there. I think we need to take a road trip over there next summer just for hiking.

    I was hoping to see more mountain goats up there but the only one I saw was the one I almost killed when he ran out in front of me.
