Congratulations! Were there four of you on the trip?

How do you go to sleep at 6:30 PM?

Excellent report. I admire people who can do this in one day, but I'm not one of them. What were the temps like?

Nice trip and pics. There something inexplicable that I really like about this pic (below) -- perhaps the cameo hikers set against the numerous cirrus clouds and dark blue sky. I doubt the darkened hikers were intentional, but the effect is nonetheless very interesting.

If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them more than the miracle of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it.
