Hey, a couple of hours after I took that pic, the weather was worse than in yours...I still win. :)

Isn't it amazing how bad weather more or less defines the mountain experience? Nice weather is great and all but you really haven't experienced it until you get the snot beat out of you by a storm while on the side of one of those beeeyooteeful peaks.

Some people who have great technical photographic ability lack the aesthetic component. You have a great sense of composition, Jody. I always enjoy your shots--it's a windfall to see good work for free. Kudos and thanks.

I lose again!

Hey, a couple of hours after I took my pic, it was beautiful and sunny! Humphreys is a beautiful peak, and that just happens to be the best shot of it I have. My favorite breakfast spot in Bishop is the Western Kitchen, only because it has a view of Humphreys out the front window.

Now if it had a view of Dhauligiri...
Ouch!

Hooter- if you want that pic at full resolution I can email you one. It's much better looking.
