Year One - The Best of the Best...
« on: December 03, 2006, 11:38:11 PM »
There have been many outstanding pictures posted on http://www.bigbendchat.com over the past year.  Please resize and post one and only one picture that is your favorite picture of the past year - you don't need to be the origional author of the picture, the picture that "means the most to you" - the picture that captures the essence of BIBE.

I'll start by submitting...

King of the Gypsies

This photo is the culmination of four years of research and five expedition-grade trips into some of the most rugged country I've traveled in the park.  It is by no means the end of my exploration of this area, but it was the culmination of hours of research and thousands of calories burned.  Everytime I've made the climb back out of this area, I've sworn to myself I would never go back - but each time I have, and each time it's given up a few more of its secrets.  

This photo can't do justice to being there - it doesn't even come close.  I've printed it out as a 8' x  3' poster and it only begins to give the sense of scale you can only experience by climbing in.

Man,... that's tough... I have seen so many great photos on the site...  Here's a suggestion just because I haven't seen anything on Santa Elena yet.
