Went up to the Iao Needle this afternoon, the "hike" was about a quarter mile. Looking for a little more action, I sung by the Iao Botanical Garden
. There was absolutely no one there besides the owner. It was a pretty good garden, but I didn't have my Macro Tubes, just the Canon 7D
and my Tamron 18-270
(I am more and more impressed with this lens- for general purpose, I just don't think there is anything better).
