Scott, in my book this wins the award for the best trip report on VAF, and there have been some very fine ones.

The picture of your beautiful -8 with the sun-tinted cumulus behind it is an award winner. It could certainly make Van's calendar.

Thanks -

Awesome trip, someday I hope to do something similar!
