Re: beautiful...

Eh? Hello, Anita !

The answer is YES! If I were a hot dog and was starving, I would most certainly eat myself!

What's the story on the Olympic games?
Are they going to have enough snow up there?

Actually, the colors are great, but I need
to do more "exploratory" hikes in the area.
