Really curious ...

I'm still waiting for a photograph taken of
you ... are those your footprints in the snow
down there? Hey, that's a start! Great photo!!

Please - it won't hurt to post a recent photo
of you with a mountain in the background. :)
I beg of you ... just one little picture??

Re: Really curious ...

Thanks! It has a lot to do with my quiet personality. There are a lot of photographs of me taken in the mountains but I’m not going to post them. Yes, those are my footprints :)

Well, nobody's perfect. Melinda -
congratulations on 'photo-of-the-day!' This
photo has a very mysterious quality to it!! :)

Probably has something to do with the
footprints! :)) ~Awesome~ 10/10!

A few pixels :) Re: Really curious ...

Larry's begging, not bad MG :) Maybe you could post "a little picture" for him ... say 50 pixels across, huh? Maybe even 75? Will it do the trick, LC ? :)

Jokes aside, there is a certain point in it ... because the pictures of mountaineers in the mountains can inspire ... not to mention that raven-wing black contrasts with so many different background colors in such a beautiful way.

Re: A few pixels :) Re: Really curious ...

Yes, I agree that you are correct, Dmitry.
But, who am I?? I'm just a humble figure of
a human being stumbling over snakes and trying
not to step on cactus here in AZ! :)))

Re: A few pixels :) Re: Really curious ...

I didn’t mean to start a big discussion. The purpose of this photo is to show the standard route to Mount Magog. I like seeing photos of mountaineers and climbers. I probably won’t be posting too many photos of myself. Sorry, I guess I’m odd :)

Is there a Gog Mt?

Utah and its biblical references!

I, too, am a shy and retiring type.

Re: Is there a Gog Mt?

Utah must have the largest number of mountains with biblical and religious names. Where there is a Magog there will be a Gog.

Thanks. We must be alike. I do like taking photos. It’s just that I would rather take photos of mountains and other people.

What's in a Name ??

Pissst - Mountaingazelle? Does an electrical
storm affect the composition and coloration of
rocks - within the 'impact area' where the lightning is known to strike?

I know it was awhile ago, but please think back when you first climbed in the Tetons of
Wyoming and Mt. Theilsen in Oregon. Did you
take a look at the coloration and structure
of the rocks at or near the summit. Did they
have a glassy coating on them, as if they
had been altered by a lightning strike???

Just curious - hope you are well. Take care!!

Re: What's in a Name ??

I guess it depends on the mountain. The summit of Mount Thielsen is hit by lightning often so some of the rocks have melted into a mineraloid that is called lechatelierite. This is a variety of fulgurite that gives it a dark coating.

Afternoon thundershowers are common in the Tetons. The summit of Mount Owen has been weathered from storms. Several other summits look like they have also received lightning strikes.

Re: What's in a Name ??

Thank you, Melinda! I'm (of course) not an
authority on geology or meteorology, but I
knew there was a ligitiment connection between mountains, weather and rocks. Take care !! (You have an unending knowledge of
mountains, and that's really awesome!) -LARRY

(Gotta LOVE the word lechatelierite!)
If it's not SOMETHING edible, then I have BIG
problem spelling it! : ))) !!!
