Nice vista-vision photo Molson. You capture the sweeping and scale of every pic.

(and YAY! I am commenting here!);-)

It seems every photo taken from the summit of a fourteener is a sweeping vista. Too bad this photo was washed out by too much sunlight. The old Canon A80 is somewhat limited in it's abilities, but it does a good job for an inexpensive point and shoot camera. Good enough for me anyway. Thanks for commenting DD.

Is that creamy stripe the underlying chalk that's got scraped off the hill?
There's a huge white horse in Wiltshire made that way... also a pagan "fertility" naked giant in a state of "excitement" just down the road...

my great aunt used to live round there... in a stone house with windowsills a yard thick...

The white strip you see Gledwood is snow that hasn't melted off yet. It was actually necessary to hike through some snow to get to the summit on that fine July day. Some peaks will still have quite a bit of snow up high in July. Generally the peaks are snow free in August other than the year round glaciers which are small in Colorado. See a photo of a year round glacier here.
