I've had my Vibram Five Fingers for over a year now and am confident that my feet are conditioned to minimal footwear, so I decided to hike in them despite state park's "always wear sturdy boots" guideline. It turned out to be an awesome experience. Your brain gets an extra dimension of I/O—feeling the pebbles, gripping the rocks—so you feel a stronger connection with nature. I will say that I was lucky in that the trail was mostly dry today. The few wet patches I had to go through taught me very quickly that a non water proof VFF is a bad idea for anything wet and slippery.
Having photography as a past hobby, I realize what could be accomplished at waterfalls with a DSLR and a tripod. But hey, out of the 16 photos I took with my phone, Google picked out 2 and applied filters on its own. Isn't that (auto)awesome?
