First hike of 2018. The coldest day I have hiked yet, but it was well worth it. With very little wind the cold temperatures weren't actually much of an issue, unless we stopped for too long. I wanted to start the year off right, and try out my new 14 mm lens some more. I picked up the Rokinon 14 mm f/2.8 because it gets amazing reviews, and it is possibly one of the best lenses you can get for the money. At about 5x less than the Nikon equivalent, about the only thing it lacks is auto-focus. For landscape work though, manual focus isn't much of an issue. Needless to say, I couldn't be happier with the purchase.
