    Was the photo with Michelle taken Saturday afternoon? If so, I think we passed each other, as we were on the way to the summit. Michelle's fiance was with our group (he was our guide).

    I'm new to the forum and will be a first-timer later in August. 'Not Without Peril' - is this a publication, web page, other document? How can I access it? BTW, enjoyed Corey's photos.
