D800 goes backpacking in Yosemite

Just got back from my Yosemite backpacking trip over the weekend. We spent 3 days out in the high country. I've been to the valley a few time but this was my first time up here backpacking and I have to say the trip was surreal! Such an incredible place that I'm already planning a return trip!

For the gears, as much as I wanted to save weight, there was no way I would have left the D800 at home. My "backpacking" setup consist of the 24-120/4, 20/2.8 AIS, Benro CF tripod and one polarizing filter. Total weight with everything else came out to be 32lb! It was the lightest I could get it. Oh well, enough with this. Here are the pictures.

All shot RAW, processed on LR4. CC are welcome.
