Thanks for the comment. I know what you mean about the crowds too. Its really hard to find solitude like this on Chimney Tops in the spring. I'm sure the mountain had several dozen more visitors that day. I guess all the tourists in the valley just hit the snooze button that morning. Yeah, it was real special being alone on top that morning.
