  1. That is beautiful, Keith! The darkness in the right foreground and the light beyond the curve of the mountain makes you wonder what is around the corner.

  2. Thanks Diane. That's what it feels like to be there as well. The pass is so rugged that you can never see all that far ahead. You keep going a bit further hoping to find out what is ahead of the next pile of boulders.
