Specific picture descriptions: Photos above with "i" icons next to the bracketed sequence numbers (e.g. " ") are described as follows:
FCT_030413_13.JPG: From 1754 to 1765, Fort Cumberland existed in the hills currently covered by churches as a British garrison against attacking French and Indian troops. George Washington started his military career here. He lived in this cabin during 1755 while he was serving as aide-de-camp to General Braddock. Braddock was later killed in an ill-fated attack on the French. George had his only military surrender later in that war at Fort Necessity in Pennsylvania. In 1794, George came here as commander-in-chief in full military uniform to assemble troops from Maryland and Virginia who would be crushing the Whiskey Rebellion in Pennsylvania. (The actual armies for that battle were led by Daniel Morgan and Henry Lee--Robert E's father.) It is thus said that George Washington both began and ended his military career in Cumberland Maryland.

2003 photos: Equipment this year: I decided my Epson digital camera wasn't quite enough for what I wanted. Since I already had Compact Flash chips for it, I had to find another camera which used CF chips. That brought me to buy the Fujifilm S602 Zoom in March 2003. A great digital camera, I used it exclusively for an entire year.
Trips this year: Three-week trip this year out west, mostly in Utah.
Number of photos taken this year: 68,000.
