    Thanks Paul.  When I saw your version of El Capitan it reminded me of that trip.  I was particularly attuned to El Capitan because my nephew was working in Yosemite as a volunteer the previous summer.  He was climbing El Capitan (with ropes) with a friend when he accidentally dropped his pack, which fell 600 feet.  He lost his food/water/shirt and non-climbing shoes, but decided to continue to the top.  Had to hike back to the valley in his climbing shoes and got a sunburn on the way.  While I have hiked and backpacked for decades, that photo is the closest I will get to climbing El Capitan.

    Yikes. Glad that was all that fell.

    Nice, John, and you can get rid of the contrail in Camera Raw.Not hard to do.

    Yes, Russ, but I liked the contrail.  I have other shots without it.

    Fair enough, John. I liked contrails when I was flying F-84s, but I don’t much care for them in pictures.
