This is for Paul. I posted a link to your trip pictures on the Yahoo group for the JMT and now everybody wants to know who you are. Ladd thinks your Paul McGloughlin? Lots of people would like to say hi so if you drop in to the group and leave your contacts at least Ladd and Dittli might know you. Others would like to. Great trip, not what I was hoping for but still great trip. i want to walk on the ground not the snow.

John - I cheated! My ski buddy Charley did the maps. I think he has the TOPO! program - you can draw the route in on that, and then he gets a jpeg off there somehow. He posted them on ttips, and I copied the images from there. The google earth view I did - you just draw a route and save the view as an image.

Doyle - thanks. It was awesome to be out there.
