Being out in nature is a beautiful thing but frequently we dress for the weather of our destination. More often than not I am in hiking boots when I am out taking photos of wildlife and landscapes. They provide warmth, durability, traction and support for wet, rocky, snowy or cold conditions. But I don't like driving in them so I usually have a pair of Chaco sandals that I change into. Frequently my boots also get very, very wet, as was the example this morning when I had to walk through water in a marsh to get out for a better view of some moose. A change of shoes helped my feet dry off and let my boots air out for the three hour drive home.
