Don't tell him. I have so many like that too. He eats the weirdest stuff.

I have a picture of me holding a flag with a political message on it, but then I threw it away because I realized hauling flags with political messages to the tops of mountains to have my picture taken with them is ridiculous.

Edited to tone down offensiveness.

I guess that is one way of solving the "summit poop" problem. :lol:

I love my LoJ profile pic.

Most folks know that my hiking buddy Doug took that photo. What they probably don't know, though, is that I took a photo of him up there that day in the exact same outfit.

Top of Pikes Peak with a bunch of outdoors enthusiasts. It was between this one, and a picture of the cog railway.

By far my favorite part of this picture - Who drove the UHaul to the top of Pikes??
You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know. - Rene Daumal
