Re: I Climbed a Mountain [pics]

Man, I miss Colorado so much! Thanks for sharing the pics. I climbed Holy Cross, Longs,
Massive, Ida (not a 14er, but still), Elbert & Pikes Peak (3 times). Never took a single picture...seriously.

I've been wanting to do Holy Cross ... attempted Massive and Elbert, but the weather was bad for both.

Long's was a bitch.

Next is probably Blanca or Crestone Peak.

eglin afb, florida and yeah, the best clouds in the world are right over biloxi MS/gulfport (which is where keesler's at)... i'm about 4 hours away and the weather is almost exactly the same here (100% humidity at 2am... hot dam!).

i wish they allowed me to take pictures at work though :/ like when we had a C-5 (HUGE plane) land missing it's front two wheels... (you gotta figure they had them when they took off). work just stopped so everyone could get right on the runway and watch the thing land/possibly explode at 300ft away. pilot's aced it though, and it just looked like a very normal short landing, but man, that would have been a crazy pic.

I was stationed at Keesler for 2 summers from May 2005-August 2006. You're right about the clouds/sunset, but I'll take the sun rising over Pike's Peak every morning outside my kitchen window any day. There's something disconcerting about walking out of an air-conditioned dorm at 5 am and immediately being saturated with your own sweat.

Talk about a major environmental change: I went from living on the Gulf Coast (95 degree and 100% humidity) to Colorado Springs (70 degrees and 20% humidity coupled with a ~6,000 foot elevation change) in less than 2 days.

My sister just got back from Korea, and she's stationed at Eglin now. Mary Flannery - PMEL. She's a Redskins fan too.

She was at an air show in Idaho (Mtn. Home AFB), and a pilot had to eject, crashing his plane. She got a photo, but I can't find it. I'll bet it was intense.

a guy i know from keesler is here working PMEL now too... eglin's pretty nice if you can get past the heat. though, we do go to hotter places where 135 isn't out of the question.

Don't know if you heard about it, but there were some tornadoes in Northern Colorado about a month ago that pretty much wiped out the town of Windsor. The day before, I saw the biggest thunderhead in my life. It nearly took up the entire sky, and it was shaped like an anvil. It was wicked. That cloud looks similar, only smaller.

Did you know that only Florida receives more lightning per year than Colorado?

oh yeah, seen that first hand. this is also only the second place i've actually seen massive amounts of heat lightning. (biloxi MS being the first, and only 4 hours away)... i mean, i saw a tiny bit on one flight to dallas, but i don't really remember seeing any around DC.

here it happens a LOT, and it'll just sit up in the clouds sparking all night.
