Last year, for Labor Day weekend, my father and I went to Burney Falls, California. We have done this for the last five years or so, with friends from the various softball teams he plays on. Burney Falls Campground is an hour or so north of Susanville, CA (in turn an hour or so north of Reno). It's a beautiful location, and home to a few neighboring small towns.
This was my first trip with my 5D Mark III, and it's kit lens, the 24-105mm f/4L IS. I also went with my nifty fifty (50mm f/1.8), my 100mm f/2.8 Macro, and my 70-200mm f/4L IS. Those, I used for landscape, portraiture, flowers/insects, and events, respectively.
To start, we stopped by the Burney Falls, and walked around, and down the river downwater of its flow. Then, we took a trip to a nearby golf course, and ended the night in a bar equipped with shuffleboard table.
On our second day, we stopped by the Intermountain Fair. They had farm animal competitions (this guy even posed for me), some events, performers, and concerts, and then the Labor Day parade. The last day, we went to the demolition derby, which I'll talk about in a future post.
