Well asmrz, sounds like you got a decent approach for handling obscure peaks. But unfortunately many folks will vote 10/10's on popular peaks too which is where the problem arises.

I'm going to change my vote on Mount Rainier. I was born and grew up in its shadow, but all I learned is it's much BIGGER than I am.

Mount Rainier is just the inanimate remnants of a sleeping volcano, and it doesn't care a rat's ass about me or the votes I have given it .... :wink:

If Obama doesn't address the vote inflation soon, the country will go to Hell in a handbasket. This is the single most important issue of our time.

Yes and I have some more photos about change for you (these ones taken by someone else).

A week ago you went with us to lower Maidenwater. This is the dropoff/pool as seen in May 2010 that is is completely gone now:

It was about 10 feet high, though it's hard to tell that from the photo. Just in case you wanted to see why I kept expecting to run into a dropoff and deep pool on our route. :wink: It should have been right at the end of the little subway section.

If I get around to borrowing a scanner, I have some more old photos of changes on the routes.

(Perhaps this post is off topic though, but feel free to PM me).

How long before a canyon page gets featured on the front page?

You have the right to vote however you want, but it seems that this lady's mistake was an honest one, not a deliberate attempt to mislead people as we have seen from someone else recently. I would suggest pointing out the mistake, voting 5/10, and changing your vote if she makes the correction.

Cheers!

It should read the Cordillera Real rather than the Cordillera Blanca. Of course it is just a profile pic, so not big deal to me (simple typo).

Long story, but someone (else) was photoshopping photographs to mislead people.
