Longs Peak, Pagoda, and...

Longs Peak, Pagoda, and Chief's Head Peak from the summit of Mchenry's Peak.

As you move from left to right at the left edge of the photo, the Keyhole is the first very small notch in the ridge on Longs left skyline.

The Trough still contains some snow in this late August photo.

Re: Nice Shot

Thanks BJ. Good to see you around again. Maybe we'll meet at the SP gathering this summer.

Re: Nice Shot

Nelson-When I first saw this picture during one of my earliest visis to SP, I was stunned and impressed. I printed it, cut it out and placed it in my scrapbook of mountain pictures. Now I stumble on it again and see that it was you who took the picture! I'm honored to know the guy that took the picture in my scrapbook, and call him a friend. Now that picture is very special. Thanks for sharing it and being there, even though it was an unwitting thing on your part.

Re: Nice Shot

Well, what can I say but thanks much Aaron! Of course I am very pleased to read what you have to say here.

I had wandered away from the actual summit to check out the ridge connecting to Arrowhead, looked back and saw my friend standing there, casually composed and snapped one shot. When it came back from the lab I was surprised at how good it turned out. The Rocky Mountain Nature Association used it as a banner on one of their newsletters. Now I want to return and redo the shot even better...
