Some terrific pictures from your travels here.. 'Jethro'...illustrating the grandeur and vastness of the area....for me - exposure is smack on...and not overdone...Dj..UK.

Thank you David - the vastness gets me every time. I am never ready for it.

Many thanks for your nice comment - Jethro

Vast indeed Jethro must have looked the same a couple of hundred years ago, they'd have been sat on horseback admiring the view then.

Thank you Ian

Your wish is my command.

Actually we were lucky to see these guys on horseback out yesterday. Equally high up (12,000+)

I don't know what I am going to do with all that oxygen at sea level.

Cheers from Colorado - Jethro

Fantastic scene here, so vast! Puts our Pentland Hills, here in Midlothian, into the shade. Lovely colours and light. Regards from Scotland. nik

Thank you very much Nik

Well they are a wee bit bigger. The hills in the background are at 12,000 to 13,000 feet. We topped out over 12,000 this day from a starting point just under 9,000 feet.


All the best from rainy North Carolina to (hopefully) sunny Midlothian - Jethro

Best wishes from NC - Jethro
