Mike, nice pose there buddy. This one has some excellent photoshop potential. You couldn't have just held the brownies in front of Kevin's chest?

Congrats to all of you! Sounds like a big group enjoyed the festivities. There are so many nice peaks on the 13er part of that list. I especially like how you got several more peaks on the same day. When I did that one years ago I spent two days out there and only came away with RGP. A return visit is now in order to pick up the rest.

Scot, that is hillarious!

Congrats Sarah, Kevin, and Mike! It was a great weekend! Thanks for letting me tag along. And thanks for draggin me over to 13017 - I wouldn't have done it normally but it turned out to be the best peak of the weekend. But I can say that because I didn't finish on RGP!

Nice work!! Whats next?
