    .........like standing up or tying your shoe laces.

    I've never climbed past 14K plus a few. That was tough enough.

    That's a great shot. Every year that altitude is getting less likely for me.

    It's a great hobby and meshes well with backpacking, except for having to hire a house sitter, of course... If there's anything I can do for you or questions I can answer, just give me a shout. You can click on the photo in my post to go to more photos of my trees if you want....

    I have about 40 total, and you guessed my plan for my next avatar! Just need to sew the tiny hammock....

    Hope this doesn't scare any children!

    My current avatar shot was self-taken while canoeing at Trap Pond in DE. Interesting spot - probably the northernmost stand of mature Bald Cyprus trees to be found.
