Entertaining write-up! (as well as informative.) The headers were especially clever & eye-catching.
Thanks Sharon, glad you enjoy it!

Excellent page - might be missing some pictures
Nice page. I didn't understand the "Get Real" segment. It's amazing how many ways 9-11 has affected our lives. Thanks for posting.
The whole "SP Police" schtick is a bit of an inside thing for the heavily active folks here at SP. I added some helpful references to the section.....
I had to check out this peak due to it's interesting name. Nice page to bad about the restrictions.
Not a bad name, really ;-)
Oh, another of those snow-free desert peaks, ripe for an easy winter ascent! Wearin' white camo, were you?
Well, any photos of your epic?
You did not write why this peak is off limits. I think this is important info that needs to be added
Hmm.....the peak is off-limits because the military says so. I don't question exactly why. I thought the references to 9/11 security were adequate. What would you suggest?
I don't think I read close enouph. I noticed that in the "get there" section you mentioned that the military owns the mountain. Good enouph.
Super job, as I love Nevada. Thanks for posting this one.
IAM GLAD TO FINALLY SEE MOUNT GRANT ADDED TO THE LIST, THIS IS ONE OF NEVADA'S MOST BEAUTIFUL LANDMARKS. HOW FAR CAN YOU SEE ON THE HORIZON? CAN YOU SEE MT. CHARLESTON OR MOUNTAINS IN SOUTHERN NEVADA FROM THE SUMMIT?
I don't beleive that you can see Charlston, due to some of the ridges in Esmeralda County. However, I am pretty sure that you can see the Kawich Range on a clear day. The view to the north is quite extensive, but usually tainted by poor air quality. If you got a day with no air flow from the west, I'm guessing you'd be able to see 170mi+ to the north. Thanks for the comments!
PS --- Say hi to cranky Joe Giomi down at Ace for me.
Nice touch on the section headings!
Funny, creative, informative. Great page, thanks.
Get while the getting is good. Well chosen peak 56 miles NNW of Boundary Peak. Any Bristlecone Pines?
Hey, glad you liked it. No P. longaeva or aristata here, as far as we all know. Wrong rock type, mostly. The military ownership of most of the peak curtails a lot of potential research, and the few pines that are there at altitude are quite dispersed.
