Our first 14er day in a while Zach and I got so ambitious we took down Shavano, Tabaguache, and Yale all in one day. Needless to say we were completely exhausted and ready to go down!

Great thread, I will play.

Not sure what I am doing, or why I am doing it.

While not the greatest summit shot by traditional standards, the reason this is my worst one is that we aren't actually on the summit. We took this shot thinking we were on top of Columbia, and then started heading for Harvard. After a little while when we started heading uphill again we were pretty bummed out.

Worst? Some might consider these conditions pretty bad, but this was one of my favorite days in the mountains ever.

As stated above... While these are the photos that best fit what has been requested, I think of this as one of my favorite days. Kelso Ridge in January... In a crazy storm. The rope tells you a little something about the wind.

I couldn't see through the snow more than about thirty feet, but I'm surprised my buddy could see AT ALL! Although the ice beard is pretty solid (pun intended).

Here's a series from my first summit of Sunlight. Wet shoes. Wet rock. Not much of a view but what I could get a glimpse of was very cool. I was solo and tried to take a summit shot while sitting on the summit block.

Took more than 3 tries to get a shot showing me AND the summit. :-D

The ones from the front are worse. I thought I was smiling but in the pics I looked like I was utterly miserable. :lol:

It was cold. It was windy. It was December. I was not ready for the photo yet. :lol: Me on Twin Sisters' summit.

"Mountains seem to answer an increasing imaginative need in the West. More and more people are discovering a desire for them, and a powerful solace in them. At bottom, mountains, like all wildernesses, challenge our complacent conviction - so easy to lapse into - that the world has been made for humans by humans. Most of us exist for most of the time in worlds which are humanly arranged, themed and controlled. One forgets that there are environments which do not respond to the flick of a switch or the twist of a dial, and which have their own rhythms and orders of existence. Mountains correct this amnesia. By speaking of greater forces than we can possibly invoke, and by confronting us with greater spans of time than we can possibly envisage, mountains refute our excessive trust in the man-made. They pose profound questions about our durability and the importance of our schemes. They induce, I suppose, a modesty in us."
― Robert Macfarlane
