what do ya'll think i should add/leave off?  :?:

http://www.summitpost.org/view_object.php?object_id=170882

it's still being added to, but the main descriptive text is all there. i'm going to add a park history section, camping, red tape type information, weather links, and external links, but those weren't the challenging things to write up  :oops: and of course many more pictures will be added :lol:

let me know what you think  :o

I'm going to have to read this more thoroughly later, but it looks good so far.  I really like the iframes with the pano images that you can scroll.  Great idea.

I think we should keep it a secret and only create web pages for those who we know personally/through this board.

I'll second that!

Viper, just wanted to add, after perusing your site, I have to say you and your buds have some fantastic pics.  Another thing I like about it is the graphic descriptions of the routes up some of the peaks such as Casa Grande.  I think you indicated a route up Casa Grande from the SW, can you disclose some more details on this?  Anyways, great site!!

that route is just horrible, going up at least. it is NOT a good way to gain the summit. nearly 3/4 of the elevation gain is on loose scree fields, and on that you'll gain 1 step for every 2 steps you take. just very tiring. Coming down, on the other hand, is a great thing. you can fly down the slides with some easy manuvers   :lol: the Lost Mine Trail/ridge is still the best route.

NOT to discourage you or anything, but dang it I'm having a hard enough time keeping up with this page!  Spending way too much time on this chat board, now you are opening up another can of worms of something else to keep up with!  How will I ever get any sleep or work done.   :lol:  8)

BTW - like the pics, and I realize you are a "nature" photographer, (pretty darn good one too), etc.  I guess I'm a realist when it comes to pictures.  I like to see people, camping equipment, vehicles, etc.   I snap 400-500 pictures on a trip and cull it down - I guess quantity over quality.

yeah, my first couple of hiking trips had 90% pictures with people and 10% landscapes, but now i'll fill my 4 gigs of memory up with pictures and only have 3 or 4 with someone else in them  :(

I can't believe that I'm actually old enough to say this, but...."If I were 20 years younger..."  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:
