Re: Humm

I like how the forground rock has a face looking outwards. I can clearly see the eyebrows, nose, lips and puffy cheeks. Great shot.

Re: that's some views!!

yeah...keeping the place down here for the near term....and spending half the year in Canada still..but looking for a small horse place long term...where it suits us more for 4 seasons....when I am to old to go back and forth all the time....we owned this lot for quite a few years before we built on it...same premise....I think Bend could be grass for the horses wife is in to that full time as I am climbing..kind of my idea to help her plan long term...cheers

Re: amazing shot

Thanks, and I concur...when I saw Sir Douglas from this view point on Big Sister, in inspired me to climb it. That year I did a solo ascent of the mountain. One of my more memorable climbs alone. Cheers.

I don't have enough time in the day to view all of your photos. Some of them I spend time looking at dreaming of the day when I can have a similar awe inspiring view. This photo is one of them.

Re: Ridiculous

Thank You. This incredible view of Sir Douglas motivated to do a solo climb of it...getting to the summit, seeing the next one and wanting to climb it next...can eventually become quite the compulsive behavior! Cheers.

I want to live there

Living there is starting to look better all the time if nothing more than the climbing with a field full of great mountain climbs all for approaches what are they like I live near the cascades so most are pretty long during winter or some times even in summer too.
