Thanks - the sun was just barely rising at that point, and the composition was too good to pass up - sadly my shots w/ just the snow came out blurred, but using my ice axe as a tripod worked well enough to capture this one with Joe.
"I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time."
