Good and informative page!
Is there a Sherlock Holmes Peak nearby?
There ought to be a Holmes Peak, I do think. I think Roper and Myers chose not to call their Elementary Peak Sherlock or Holmes Peak because it is lower than Watson and Holmes was always the more prominent figure in the Doyle stories.
Nearby Anderson Butte would make for a good page and so would/will Bacon Peak when I finally get around to climbing it. That was our main objective that weekend but the crusty/icy conditions on the north side of Watson nixed that.
Great page!!!!! Look like you have had a ton more snow than last year.
I couldn't possibly vote less than 4 stars on any page containing "...strew of mountains."
Besides, Holmes, it's a nice page!
Cool words are cool 'n stuff.
Here's a cool weather-related one I stumbled on the other day: pogonip. Go grab your dictionary.
Hey, neat! So with about a foot of snow on the ground (which I assume is relevant to the condition), I looked out this morning to see the sun reflecting off the pogonip, couldn't see the town, but the nearby mountains rising above the fog were nicely lit. Pogonip, indeed! I'll spread the word--my work comrades will no doubt be quite impressed with my erudite verbosity.
Good, Dr. Watson! Too bad about that boundary in the sig pic. Why don't you send me the originals and get the pano in return?
I usually don't care enough to worry about the merge lines on pano shots. But since this is a signature shot and you care, I'll send the two photos to you tonight. Maybe you can return them to me at two sizes: whatever the pixel width is after merging and then the 650 pixel width reduced version uploadable to SP. Tak.
Good page with further sluething possible. I think the highest point is the east peak at
Thanks for stopping by.
I deleted your reply comment for the Overview section concerning the east summit's height because you missed the point. I want people to give their opinion on interpreting map anomalies.
In terms of the three major summit points I do believe and agree with you that the east summit is probably the heighest but not by more than 50 feet.
Good job, Paul.
I already have a Mt. Watson page.
Flattery is the sincerest form of imitation.
A great read. Nice job.
Thanks for the vote, Martin. Please remember to upgrade your vote on Pugh page now that I have taken the stink out of it.
I will be deleting your post addition to my height query because I don't want what you've said to bias others' opinion. But I agree you could be right. More than likely the arc is the 6240+ contour which disappears under the overlaying 6280+ contour because of the near verticality of the terrain. This is within plotting limitations (resolution limitations on screen) for the map.
You've outdone yourself with this great read. Well done.
