I really like this photo. It looks like a great weather day! we sure haven't had a lot of those recently so you were fortunate.

Re: Nice

Thank you, and yes, we did come out lucky with the weather, but notice that Vernon is wearing his wind parka and hat - the morning was brutally windy and cold. It was also one of those days with heavy clouds to the east, so we didn't get sun until about noon.

Re: Nice

Fred...I was looking at this photo again and am struck by the notion that Haevy Runner and Dragon's Tail were perhaps the last climbs in GNP for Vernon. This is such a cool photo just for that reason alone.
