This pic http://matt.tracz.org/2010/08_15/IMG_1335_stitch.jpg by Slaggbottom is the coolest shot I've ever seen of Wetterhorn. The pic is big, though, and I couldn't figure out how to post it here. It's from this trip report: http://www.14ers.com/php14ers/tripreport.php?trip=8907

Kudos to Slaggbottom!

Yea, I know they aren't mountains.....but I have a fetish for Utah canyons.....so here are two of my favorites from this summer (sorry the quality isn't better....I don't like taking my good camera into the wet canyons).

The Subway

The Zion Narrows

Okay, you talked me into it.....one mountain picture.....alpenglow on Mt. Whitney

And one from the Tour D'Abyss........how cute are they ?

I like the feeling of vertigo in this shot of my wife Carol crossing between gullies on the Needle.
