Best View Larger! As is or Straight from the camera.

Welcome Pennsylvania group had a photo shoot at Ricketts Glen State park on 05/17/2010. It was a miss understanding on my part how the group was suppose to meet that day. LOL I arrived at 8:30 a.m. and nobody from the group is there yet. I had no cell phone reception to called Lori or anyone else in the group. I was afraid if I sat in the car I would get stiff and achy so I started down the trail. I came to the first waterfalls called Mohawk and I took my first shot. I was so please how perfect it look on the camera I continue down the trail. Every waterfalls photo I took was perfect straight from the camera and I was so excited to get home to download them before anyone else. LOL Murray waterfalls was the last one on the trail and I turned around to meet the others at waters meet. At Harrison Wright waterfalls is where I started having problems. I started climbing the short steep encline when I began to get wicked dizzy and lightheaded with heavy drops of sweat running down my forehead and cheeks. I turned around and managed to get to the bottom to sit down. Two wonderful lady hikers came by and offered their assistants. I asked them if they would tell the other photographers on the trail I can’t make it up and to let them know I had to walked to the bottom where route 118 meets the trail. I have been diagnose as a type II diatebic and some hikers thought I was having a diatebic attack. They were so kind to give me a bottle of OJ, energy bar and a bottle of H2O. It didn’t help. When they were able to get to the bottom where there was cell phone reception they called 911. I was still walking down the trail when the resuce gator came and took me to the bottom where I had to go to the Geisinger Wyoming Valley ER. There they did extensive testings and found that I was dehydrated, low blood sugar and my muscle enzymes were elevated. It took at least 6 hours for the tingling in my legs to clam down. When I left the ER I was feeling the best I have in a long time. LOL I still never met the group members. Will I go on another photo shoot? LOL Who’s going to stop me ? HaHaHaHa I will be better prepared for the next one.
