Hey guys, I am currently on day 4 of a 22 day road trip, hitting up a lot of national parks and a few other select places (NJ to Cali and back)

Blue Ridge Parkway
Great Smoky Mountains
Grand Canyon
Mesa Verde
Bodie California
Yosemite
Yellowstone
the Badlands

I wish I had the cash because for bears the 70-200 VRII with the 1.7x Teleconverter is just not long enough, I had to crop the bahjesus out of them. I also just picked up the Tamron 17-50 F/2.8 while en route to Amarillo, so I have not yet used it. But here is what I am using

Nikon D300s
Tamron 28-75 F/2.8
Nikon 50 1.8
Nikon 85 1.4D
Siggy 10-20
Nikon 70-200VRII
Tamron 17-50 F/2.8

The Great Smoky Mountains are absolutely gorgeous, really beautiful place. Anyway, here are a few pics, hope you guys like em. It was funny, every-time there was a bear spotted, minutes later groups of guys with really long large, expensive telephotos showed up, I felt weird with such a short lens lol
