I've just acquired a scanner so I decided to upload some photos from a big mountain in Alaska.
Nice stuff... for some reason they make it look deceivingly pleasant there and the mountains easy to climb. However, I'm sure that's not entirely the case.

Fantastic shots Bill. The ones of Hunter and Foraker are spectacular! Can't imagine what it must have been like in person.
Keep close to Nature's heart...
and break clear away, once in awhile,
and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.

One cannot conceive of grander burial than that which mighty mountains bend, crack and shatter to make. Or a nobler tomb than the great upper basin of Denali. -Hudson Stuck, archdeacon, climber (1865-1920)
Myths can't be translated as they did in their ancient soil. We can only find our own meaning in our own time. -Margaret Atwood, writer (1939-)
I popped out of the tent early in the morning saw Foraker and snapped that shot with a simple Olympus point and shoot (pre-digital). I was just lucky, but it turned out great.
