This morning in Big Bend with the basin webcam.  The sun on Carter Peak and the desert, while the Basin is still somewhat dark is really a cool view...

I guess I didn't realize that was Carter Peak (Amon Carter Peak?)  Anybody here ever climbed it?
"Rugged isolation in a Jeep with the top down, doors off, sweaty, dusty, listening to your flavor of tunes, immersed in the most beautiful and beguiling desert mountains in all of the Southwest, the Sierra Quemada. Nothing short of spiritual cleansing. " D. Locke

i've gotten to the base of the solid rock. it was a very bad sramble up there, lots of loose rock, and the rock above looked technical. It might have been very hard 4th class, but we didn't have time to attempt it. It is most assuredly very, very exposed.
