Sky Watch Friday







Happy Sky Watch Friday. This is a photo of my son, John, climbing up Mt. Lassen. He got me started and all I know is that I made it to the top, which happens to be 10457'. There is very little oxygen at that altitude or that's what it felt like to me. I loved the sky and the stillness during our ascent. We did have some smoke in the distance from the fires from Lake Tahoe (June 2007). These are my Sky Watch Friday photos. Sky Watch Friday here>

I only wish that we didn't have the smoke in the backgroud. Thanks for the nice comments.

Hi there, thank you for stopping by. I have enjoyed your Sky Watch photos, as well as the other great ones on your blog. A great memory you will share in the years ahead, of the day you and your son climbed that mountain. I also thought the gorilla photo was wonderful. When you visit this area and if you get a chance, go check out our gorilla family at the National Zoo. They are also truly awesome.
