    Default Summit pics. and Marty

    we were up on the summit on Tuesday the 28th and I shot a fe pictures while I was up there with my wife and daughter. It was a beautiful afternoon and we arrived on the summit about 4pm via the Auto Road. Here are a few pics.




    While there I had the pleasure of petting Marty for a while. He was meowing and purring and kept rolling over back and fourth. He seems to be doing pretty good after the doctors visits.






    A shot of the summit just before the Cog arrived.


    I like this one with the cross right beside the track.


    I call this one my stairway To Heaven.


    Tracks to nowhere..


    Just below the summit with one train arriving.


    Two trains.


    There is some more pictures at this link.

    Very nice photos. Looks like it was the perfect day to be up there. And it looks like Marty really enjoyed posing for the camera. Thanks.

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    Chris,

    Those are great pictures on a beautiful day. Can I grab copies of the Marty pictures and add them to the MWO album at http://public.fotki.com/MWO/favorites/summit-cats/

    Please feel free to grab any you can use Brad. It was a great afternoon up there and we did not want to leave. But when we were just below the summit taking pictures a man and a woman from New York came up to us and asked if there was any way I could give them a ride down and to PNVC. Of course I said yes and they looked exhausted and knew they could not make it to the Lakes hut. The van told them they could walk down the auto road that the last van was full. I was glad to help.

    i would have done the same thing and before i would pay to go down in a auto road van i would ask some one that had room in there car first then offer them some $ for the ride

    Great pics of Marty! It's been over a year, since my visit with him. Such a big boy now! Think you found the perfect backdrop for him Chris. Thanks for sharing.

    Fantastic pics Chris. Tuesday was definitely the day to be on the summit. We were blessed with that day on the Bonds and it was incredible (TR soon). The Marty pics are awesome! Some of the best of him I've seen. Can't believe that he actually not only graced you with his presence but allowed petting and provided purring. You must be a real cat person Thanks for sharing!
