That Crestone Needle picture is poster-worthy!

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."

Not a 14er, but still a cool sight. Taken on Hieroglyphics Trail #101, Arizona.

Page 4, Cougar's middle photo looks like the face of an enraged elephant.

I like the Sasquatch photo too.

Mt.Sherman was my first 14er at the beginning of July. This was an amazing adventure in the fact my buddies and I never actually saw the summit until we arrived there.

This would fall into the desolate category. These two were coming down as I went up Grizzly Peak D.
