Highlight for the day: skipping dinner at camp and going to a local pizza place by myself. I enjoyed both the solitude and the great pizza. But I ate to much.

Awesome pics David... thanks for posting them. Notice you're reading "Into Thin Air" I just finished it last week - sitting in a summer chalet at a rocky mountain lodge in Canada - and loved it. Hope it inspires you for those next few climbs.

Len, thanks for the encouragment. We'll have to go for a ride next year.

John, ironically I'm finding a lot of similarites in the book as the ride. Good eye!
