Like I said in my original post about Eisenhower State Park, we didn’t get to do nearly as much hiking as we would have liked due to the trails being super muddy but we did get a bit in and the trails over looking the lake are gorgeous! The non-muddy portions of the trail were
If you have ever stopped by my About the Photography page or seen my Canon Camera Review post you know that a lot of the pictures on the blog are taken with either a Canon or an iPhone. I wanted to compare similar photos that were taken from each device to give an idea of
