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.
