To a camera shop with Chris, where after some deliberation I bought a new Pentax Z1 with a 28/85mm f/3.5-f/4.7 zoom. Later into Washington DC to take a look around.

Off with Rose Dagostino today to visit the Virginia and West Virginia sights. First to Harpers Ferry, then on to Fredericksburg before returning to Reston, giving me a good chance to try out my new camera. Rose did all the driving, but I was surprisingly tired at the end.

Off today to Colorado Springs to spend the weekend with Rob Kolstad and Jeff Polk. I was still using up my air miles, so I flew first class, and I was outside the gate and sitting down by the time Rob arrived to pick me up, somewhat confused.

Rob has put on quite a programme for the weekend, and today we went up to Pikes Peak, the highest place I have eve been, 4,302 m above sea level. The air was electric.
