Some of my immediate previous posts have been DELETED in part by me. I will not and should not partake in any future TROLLING.

This is too nice of a thread to be ruined by the TROLL ... AQUA.


My APOLOGIES for falling in and doing so.

Thanks guys and gals for the eye candy. I caught the beginning of the fall colors but it looks like I'm going to miss the rest.

Rest of the set (who the hell takes over 100 pics on a workout? Gotta start leaving the camera at home...):

And aqua, I drooled over Dan and Christian's descent last week, too. But...

and you are a woman for not taking on my bet.


The correct term is "chick". Any self-respecting woman would be offended.

Lower Rock Creek is going off now. The trail along the creek is a great hike if the weather is nasty at higher elevations.

Thank you Blair! It's hard to take a bad picture out there. :)
Picture #73 would be my friend Andy climbing on a glacier at the base of the Minarets, in the Ritter Range. This following picture (#63) displays the glacier pretty well: http://picasaweb.google.com/bushidanny/ ... 6409452434
If approaching from Lake Ediza (East), you can see the glacier as you gaze West towards the Minarets: http://picasaweb.google.com/bushidanny/ ... 9885166946 (It's the lowest one in the picture, near the middle)

You should totally takes your skis in that area! However, this glacer would probably not offer a very long ride.. A few minutes at best. I am sure there are better spots around though!

Thank you as well dskoon! Yup, stood on top of Ritter and was surrounded by dark clouds, pouring down on nearby mountains. Luckily, Ritter spared us its wrath... Man, it was such an awesome experience! But to be back on topic, the fall colors were amazing -- check it out next fall!
