    I saw it posted as a computer background online but I'm wondering what mountain this may be, or at least what part of the world its from.

    Cheating the southern presidentials

    I drove up on Sunday morning with my dad and brother for the sunrise drive around 3:00AM. It would have been pretty hard to know where I was on the road if there weren't any brake lights ahead of me...

    Pretty much the only thing set in stone for me is starting on Valley Way. I plan on hitting all of the major summits, with possibly skipping Madison and saving it for another day.

    Yeah, I suppose it would be a little too ambitious to try to make it down Madison. I am planning on doing a Presi Traverse this summer though, and doing it at least once without snow is probably a...
