I decided I needed a photo of myself in the Hero Photos! section of my page.
Don't worry, the stuffed snow leopard has me securely on belay.

Hero photos

Great term, hero photos, and a great photo as well. I love the snow leopard! Which peaks are those in the background?

Re: Hero photos

Thanks Charles. Mathias gets the credit for coming up with the "Hero Photo" concept. The snow leopard is named Sonam and he travelled with my wife when she spent a month doing medical work in Nepal. He's been above 20,000' a couple of times now.

The peaks behind me are Makalu and Chamlang. You can see more of the view here. See you around.

When I First Saw Nelson

When I first saw Nelson on SP, it was this picture and it was on his profile page. And I thought, "WOW! Now there's an experienced mountaineer!" And then I had the pleasure of meeting him in person. Just a normal guy that loves the mountains. But he's a great guy, too, and his charming wife is a real sweetie. I look forward to seeing them again!

Re: When I First Saw Nelson

Thanks for the kind words Aaron! Jude and I are looking forward to your slide show. It will be great to get together again, and to meet a bunch of new SP'ers.

> WOW! Now there's an experienced mountaineer

That's the thing about photographs. They often lie. Compared to most folks here on SP my mountaineering resume is pretty slim.
