    Default Mount Clay

    Absolutely right, Tim. A dang fine view! I had it all to myself on a hike in September '05 and I grew a great appreciation for it then.

    and most difficult to capture on film

    Here's an attempt though:



    Wouldn't it be cool to zip-line from the top of Washington, over the Great Gulf and land on Clay? Or Sphinx Col?

    That sounds fun if it's a harness and not hanging by my arms. There would also have to be a mechanism to slow me down before the end of the line.
