This Spire Inspires

An easy pun for a great-looking mountain and an excellent photo.

Re: This Spire Inspires

Thanks, glad you like it. Your SP name caught my eye; there's a Brenta Spire in the Bugs, E or NE of Bagaboo. It's one of those in the background in some of the Bugaboo, NE Ridge photos. I haven't climbed it, so someone else will have to add it to SP.

Thought you'd want to know, in case you don't have plans for next summer.

Thanks! I didn't know of the Brenta Spire. One more reason for me to visit those mountains, though I'm not sure when that will be.

Thank you.

It's hard to go wrong with a camera in the Bugaboos. Although after two of my trips there I had to take the camera apart and fix it after too much rain.
