Good eyes. Yes, I picked up the used E-M5ii at Stewarts on Friday. I
needed a camera with a flippy screen or an HDMI monitor. I'm also
figuring some stuff out for future plans and needed an inexpensive
test vehicle. Overall, I'm pleased.
Unfortunately, we had stopped on one of the steep slopes to rest for a
few minutes and eat a food item. I sat the camera down. When I got up,
I accidentally kicked it and sent it tumbling down the slope. It
rolled down the steep incline, hitting rocks along the way, for about
40 feet. Fortunately, the camera is equipped with a Fotodiox all-metal
hand-grip and that took the brunt of the collisions. Other than a
couple new scratches, it's perfectly fine. Whew. I had the 12-32 on it
at the time and it just had some dirt on it and the lens cap never

Yes, that's the trail going down from the pass into the Williwaw
valley. That is a brutal trail going down. I would recommend doing
this hike clockwise as going up is much safer than going down.

O'Malley Peak, Williwaw Lakes and Middle Fork Trail. We went up Little
O'Malley Peak (Nintendo Hill), then the trail up to Ballfield, down
the extremely steep trail to the lakes and back on the Williwaw Lakes
Trail. Our overall hike had much more distance and elevation gain
since we had to park at a different location.
Honestly, the pictures don't do it justice. The views, scenery, and
overall visual impact of this trail loop is overwhelming. And what is
really crazy is that this is just ONE of the crazy beautiful hiking
spots here in Anchorage. Everybody has a favorite spot, and this isn't
even in the top-five for some people.
