This shot was taken near Elephant Tusk just after Thanksgiving 2005, and we were on an overnight hike. The sun had just set as we reached this location and began to set up camp.

Thanks! Well, I actually planned to climb it, although the thought was more of a fantasy. When I finally got to that point on the trail, I was way too tired to even think about it. I've seen photos from other people who've climbed The Tusk, and it looks damn cool.

Wow! If those dates are correct on his photos (in the SummitPost.org site), then he was on the mountain the day I hiked up to it! Nov. 25, 2005.
