Raina Pannee

It was clear to us that Raina's avocation as a film maker was a true one. During our hikes she was so single minded that, to judge from our photographs, one might think that the video camera was a surgically implanted prosthetic.

We started calling Raina the "human tripod" for her remarkable contortionist skills. When something interesting appeared, she would begin filming, smoothly collapse into a sitting position, cradling the camera, continue filming, then stand back up - all without ever moving her feet..
