I met the guy who was the lookout person when I was down in the Henry Mountains (Ut)with Andy Martin The lookout guy was going to head for Dixie Peak to start his duties after he finished up his Utah vacation. He camped near us for several days.

Those lookout people don't spend much time in the city. I think they have urbanphobia.

...about one of his new albums.

Why not make this a mountain page? I'm afraid it will get lost in the shuffle as an album.

Even if you don't have/don't want to post detailed route info, etc., now, you could do so later and/or another contributor may post some details.

Pretty please???

Sarah, a long time ago I developed a personal opinion about any peak qualifying as "Summit Post Worthy". My guideline was that it had to have a gain of 1,000 ft, or a total hike of 5 miles, or have some techincal requiremtnt. I've been on the top of hundreds of peaks that I did not deem SP worthy and never submitted stuff. The author of "California 2,000 ft Prominence Peaks" asked me to submit pics for peaks that I have climbed that didn't have SP pages. I did so, but then I could see that the pics were lost in the main page images. I thought creating albums and adding a little description with a few more pics would enhance the information available on that page.

For you, I may liberalize my "SP worthy" definition and submit other peaks that I find particularly appealing.

Hey, don't get me wrong, I appreciate all of the contributions you've provided and continue to provideand, without a doubt, it's your choice to select criteria that determine "worthy" peaks for your submissions.

I love seeing new, valuable content added to SP. I just looked at several of your new mountain albums and cringed at the thought that the content you've provided might get lost in the shuffle as an album (vs. as a mountain).

Thanks for the note and thanks for all you share with the SP community!

Sarah, I appreciate your input and am not at all offended. You are a valuable contributor to SP as well and your opinions carry lots of "power". Yes, the album can get lost in the shuffle. Most people who are looking for info on these prom peaks will most likely visit the main page at some time.
