You have put together a neat blog, and I liked reading through this report (especially as our last trip took us to the bottom of some of those photos). Keep it coming!
2003 Tacoma DC TRD - Gets me where:
"There is splendid freedom in solitude, and after all, it is for solitude that I go to the mountains and deserts, not for companionship. In solitude I can bare my soul to the mountains unabashed. I can work or think, act or recline at my whim, and nothing stands between me and the wild."- Everett Ruess
