Another outstanding picture Randy.....reminds me of what we'd see on REI catalog covers when we were growing up....

Thank you Joel!

I am still on a "Picket High". All grins this week at work. On this trip I thought I might see someone, or maybe nobody as usual for such a remote place. After the climb I made it back to my bivy and there must have been 12 people there. I was so tired that I wasn't as social as I would have liked to have been.

Vann was saying that he climbs vicariously and I think it is really a true experience for all of us. I know I really enjoy others photos, I will examine them closly some times.
