Photo files, climbing and other - how do you organize

Only vaguely related to climbing, but how do you guys organize your digital photos? For my actual printed photos, I've had them by subject, then by date (e.g., a shoebox of climbing photos, envelopes of oldest in back, going forward in time, a box of family photos, friends, vacations, etc.).

Not sure if this is the best way for digital files or not. Maybe by year, then subject within that year. Thoughts from the collective?

Climbing during Thanksgiving

Are there any places in the lower 48 that are good for climbing/hiking in Late November? Rockies/Cascades/Sierras? I am looking for either Hiking or Stable snow routes. I know snow in Colorado ROckies is very unstable in November. I am not sure about northern rockies and other ranges mentioned above. Any information would be really helpful.

Thanks!

Bi-lingual pages

I'm planning on creating a page for a mountain in Guatemala. I'm wondering if there is precedence for bi-lingual pages, and if that is encouraged or discouraged. I'm a native English speaker, but speak Spanish close to fluently (I live in Guatemala.)
Any input appreciated.
Peace,
Tim
