Koko Crater Revisted

It’s been a while since I last hiked up this beast. Not so long ago, I’d do this short scorcher once, maybe twice, a week for exercise. And then life took over and I suddenly didn’t have much free time. Well, things have changed. Koko Crater is one of those hike that will quickly help you to figure out whether you’re in good cardiovascular shape, or not. In my Koko Crater hay day, I was able to make it up to the top in under twenty minutes. Today, I was far from the time. Time to dust off those old hiking shoes (or get new ones) and get back into hiking shape. After all, this new change is the start to new and fantastic things.

Testing Out the iPhone 5 and Panorama Mode at the Top of Koko Crater

I recently picked up an iPhone 5. Actually, not recently. I got it on Day 1. Yes, I’m an Apple fanboy and have always been one. So the iPhone 5 ships with the brand new iOS 6. One of the built-in features is Panorama mode as an option in the camera app.
