Actually I never saw Tim's recommendation until today. I looked at the page as it was going up and knew it would be excellent. Ruby has already been posted as well.

Absolutely Radek! That page got my partner and I psyched to climb in the desert this coming year. Thanks for the inspiration!

Cambrian Mountains by Nanuls is a fantastic piece of work that is deserving of front page recognition. There is a wealth of information here, with wonderful pictures and text. Well laid out and a fine read. I was going to go to Iceland next fall but now I want to go here instead! :D

Hey Cheers Tim, you'd be welcome over here any time!

I would like to nominate the Dinaric Alps page, its like an entire guidebook:

Oh I did not see this page.

I suggest to put below the featured page the page of Triglav. This is really a masterpiece.

And yes I absolutely agree with the page of Dinaric Alps. Just amazing!

Cheers!

First-- Tim, thanks for the nomination!

Second, I know Vernon's already had a featured page and maybe it's too soon to repeat the honors, but the Glacier N.P. page is one of the best ever (my vote for THE best, in fact).

Third, great job nominating Nanuls. I love all his pages.

Agreed. Dan only joined SP less than 6 months ago and his contributions since then have been prolific in quantity and outstanding in quality. He's single handedly rejuvenated a host of Welsh mountains (I'm biased here since they happen to be dear to my own heart) that were moribund at best and then he's gone on to add a whole bunch of new ones. A tremendous resourse to have on board. Give him the recognition he deserves.

Center Mountain by Montanaboy is a fine example of what SP can be. Great writing, super layout, and wonderful pictures. Very inspiring work indeed.

Absolutely Bob, your work on this site is top drawer!

Glacier National Park

I agree, that page [book] is the absolute best on SP, I have encouraged Vernon to have it published as a coffee table edition. It is every bit as good as " Crown of the Continent" by Ralph Waldt!

He is one of the many fine EU contributors, and to be honest I really need to study the European pages more! But I really enjoy Nanuls pages, he really has a knack for making his part of the world seem very special.

Everyone-

I've taken note of your suggestions in this thread. Thanks for your input! We hope to expand the feature very soon and I can hopefully display more of your suggestions. Be watching for it.

Iron Mountain by SawtoothSean. As usual from him, it's an excellent page. He has done a lot to put Idaho on the SP map.
