Been to the top of Kings during the summer of 86. I lived just south of the Uintah mountains from 84-87. My favorite range as I has the chance to explore them as a young man.
Anti-crepuscular rays pointing to the anti-solar point at sunset in the Pakistani Karakoram.
Ah, Mont Blanc being not so blanc right now.
Sunset near Duikar-Hunza in the Gilgit-Baltistan region in Pakistan.
Interesting light and shadowing on Laila Peak, Pakistani Karakoram.
20,000 ft. and an extreme skiing destination- look at that slope!
Winter late lighting on Sneffels Peak, one of the 'Fourteeners' in the Coloradan Rockies.
Mount Washington, New Hampshire in the Presidential Range of the White Mountains. While not the most interesting looking mountain, it is a formidable peak with extreme weather conditions that can change rapidly. It set the highest wind speed record not including tropical cyclones at 231 MPH. It is the highest Northeastern peak in the U.S. at 6,288 feet. In 2004, a temperature of -43 F with 87 MPH winds occurred making the wind chill -102 F. Seasonal average of snow is 280". In 1968-69 566" of snow fell there. Since 1849, 150 people have died hiking the mountain.

Awesome pics! you made me turn my heater up though. I've snapped my ACL in both knees and then some, too bad for me those days are over but I appreciate the view.
The west face of Nanda Devi in late afternoon shadowy lighting. It is the second highest mountain in India and No. 23 in the world.
But you were at it at one time, no?
Only very minor cliff climbing here in Tx. I meant my days with activity "like that" is pretty much over for me, too many knee accidents. The last time I was on a cliff, I heard the belayer(didn't know him) ask somebody, "Hey, dooood, hey man, I'm I doin this right bro?" I felt a body freeze coming on.
Sunset in the Smokies, USA.
The first death of a schoolmate was a climbing fall, a lesson that stuck in my mind. Gravity is a constant.
Sunset over Crater Lake, Oregon (Mount Mazama)
