I snuck this photo in while taking a walk with my wife on our mini-honeymoon a little over 5 years ago. Miraculously I stayed out of the doghouse while taking photos on our hike.

I snuck this shot in while taking a stroll with my wife (of 24 hours) on my mini-honeymoon. My wife isn’t the most patient so I had to rush to get this one in.
