The mountains - whose summits reach or exceed arbitrary thresholds for elevation and prominence - are calling and I must go.

After seeing all these amazing photos, I seriously considered not even bothering with posting mine, as they pale in comparison. But I love taking cloud photos, so here is my very humble contribution...

Near Guanella Pass trailhead

Pikes looking creepy from Manitou

Longs Peak engulfed

Mt. Lincoln

Heading up Pikes

Summit of Pikes Peak

As if none of us have ever come back with a cool, quasi-epic story instead of being victim to tragic rockfall, a fatal stumble, a heart attack, an embolism, a lightning strike, a bear attack, collapsing cornice, some psycho with an axe, a falling tree, carbon monoxide, even falling asleep at the wheel getting to a mountain. If you can't accept the fact that sometimes "s**t happens", then you live with the illusion that your epic genius and profound wilderness intelligence has put you in total and complete control of yourself, your partners, and the mountain. How mystified you'll be when "s**t happens" to you! - FM
