Oh man!!!!!!!

This mountain, with a little snow on it, could give the best of,em a run for their money. It looks more like the Matterhorn than the Matterhorn peak of the Sierras.
Great photo,

Re: Let's go

2012 works for me. I am pretty fried by this time of year. I have just a few more trips in me for a while.
