    Charlie they did offer to pay us something, but I refused. I would hope someone would help me if I ever needed it. They were very nice people and there twin 13 year olds were at some camp in Maine. They offered to buy us dinner if we were ever in New York.

    Mark I have two black cats of my own. I was suprised also. He was sucking up all the petting and I believe my daughter got some shots of me petting him but I have not downloaded them yet.

    Can't wait til the end of August for the last sunrise drive to the summit. Maybe this one will be clear.

    I used a Canon 5D Mark II with a 28-135 lens. I will have some up of me petting him as soon as I get a chance to download my daughters pics. She uses my older Canon Rebel. Oh yea no catnip

    I love the shots from your daughter Chris - particularly the last one. You also have proof of the "alleged cat petting" now

    just an echo Chris on the photos of Marty and also your friendly attitude toward weary hikers. in the old days we would never hike a loop. We always hitched a ride back to the car. Rides were always appreciated!

    Default Nin in his (inside) element...

    I was looking through some old photos and came across this one of Nin taken on a visit to the Observatory in early June 2005. He was obviously resting in his favorite spot between more adventurous exploits.
