    Default "Wild View"



    The view from the Wildcat Ski Trail blows me away. I can never get enough of it.

    This is one of the oldest ski trails in the country and is still one of the best.

    If you are out skiing this winter give this trail a try. It will not disappoint.

    Just remember to concentrate on skiing so you won't end up in the woods.

    Lastly, I love this outlook because I can easily trace my route up Mount Washington as I decide which trail to ascend for Seek The Peak.

    Does anyone have any suggestions how I may post a larger photo?

    Also, I am having difficulty getting the photo to show up on the post while I am previewing.

    Thank you for your help.

    I guess I need more practice posting images.

    Doug,

    I always upload to my photo site (Fotki.com in my case). Then i copy the URL of the image itself (not the web page) and paste it in the forum post with [img] in front of the URL and [/img] after it. There should be no spaces in there. Then the post will be good size and clearer in many cases. This is the approach most of us use.

    What a great day for skiing and snaps. Nothing like a clear day to remind you why skiing is so cool.

    But that adventure should be left for a future post.
