At times I ask myself the same thing. My wife certainly wasn't going to stop while I set up my tripod. Still winter in the Sierra is tame compared to the Rockies. If it weren't for my love of skiing, I wouldn't do this. Oh and the skiing was terrible. I've been to the Virgin Islands and it was quite pleasant, maybe too pleasant. I sure could get lazy quick living in a tropical paradise. I really don't photography much in Yosemite unless the weather becomes unstable.
