John Muir Trail with a D90, 12MP, cheap kit lenses, no sweat, no failures, all good. Didn't even use a camera bag.
Nice images... just goes to show that actually being somewhere and taking photos is the biggest part of the equation. Nice to be reminded how useful the cheap, lightweight kit lenses really can be. Your shots really make me want to hike this area. How many days were you on the trail?
I think that trip was 17 or 18 days. I've been on that trail many times since the late 80s. Trips down the full JMT have taken me between 11 and 20 days, depending on fitness, priorities, weather and the age of the kids you are introducing to a special place. Going back this summer for a "Sierra High Route" hike, this time with a D600, tripod and upgraded lenses.
