    Excellent pictures - thanks.

    For those wondering what the Ammo Trail is like as you get near the top (before the Lakes of the Clouds hut) these pictures give a good view of the open rock areas.

    Default Wow, you had a great day Sunday

    Awesome pictures. I always liked seeing that sign 2 miles out from Lakes, felt like you were getting close to "home".

    What a difference a day makes...
    Here's what the summit looked like on Saturday:



    It was in the 70's and sunny down below, but, at 5000 feet, welcome to the clouds, wind 67MPH, gusts to 89MPH according to the board in the weather center, and temp around 31F. (To keep it fun, throw in some freezing rain.) I think the boys were amazed at the difference a mile (vertical) can make! Of course, they supported the NH economy by loading up on chili and some stuff from the gift shop (note the bags in their hands in the picture.) When we were heading out for the mountain and I had them packing fleece, hats, shells, etc, they were looking at me funny, but, they were believers at the summit.

    Why isn't it ever sunny when I'm up there?

    We had to drive back early Sunday, and as we headed back down along Franconia Notch, I was dreaming about how nice it would be to be doing Lafayette that day, the Franconia Ridge would have been spectacular.

    Oh well, they'll still be there next time we're up in NH. The Old Man is gone, but, I don't think we'll lose any of the 4000 foot club anytime soon.

    Looks like you had a great day. Nice shots. Good you got up to see Jim. Next shift will be his last. Can't believe it. Well, since he's leaving the summit to teach school about 2 miles from my house, I think I can deal with it.

    Yeah, I was disappointed to hear that Jim will be leaving the OBS. But I'm sure that he will still be "around".

    Yes, I had the same feeling when I heard that Jim would be leaving the Rockpile. He has been a great asset to the organization. I am sure that even the summit fox will be sorry to see him go. Jim has so many excellent pictures of that fox. The one on the cover of Windswept is one of my favorites.




    When Jim told me a while ago he would be changing to teaching I was very pleased as he will do a wonderful job. Last summer my 10 year old grandson and I did the Ammo-Jewell route and met up with Jim at the summit. He gave us a wonderful tour and explained things in the Weather Room in a way Dakota really understood. It was great to see.

    Thanks to Jim for all he has done to promote MWO - and thanks in advance for going to a critical career - teaching.

    Good luck to Jim. He's given some great photography advice, particularly about flower close-ups and handling high contrast.
