Allison, I'm neither a guest, a damned guest, nor a statistician  lol.gif  I'm a real registered member.  Since I'm not a climber, I don't post too often.  However, from what I just said, it should be easy to guess my cc username.  no nac for cryptography is required  paranoid.gif

I agree if the photo slows things down too much, it wouldn't be good.  An avatar sized photo might be ok.  It doesn't have to be labeled.  Sometimes not spoonfeeding all the information to someone helps get them more interested in something (give a person a fish vs. teach a person to fish).  Also, there are alot of pictures you could have on the front that don't pinpoint fragile sites--closeups of mtn flowers, streams, forest shots, animals...

One thing all these Enchantment pictures have reminded me is what a great place it is.  I've only been there once, and it was awhile ago. Usually if someone asks me if the Enchantments are really nice I say, yes, but there are alot of other nice places too.  Well there are, but it's hard to find such a collection of lakes like that in one spot.

P-bear, remember I have a couple FREE open spots to the Chantments this august left.  T.D. gobbled up one.  Do you want one too?  Get them while there hot!

What Newbie Newt said!  (even on the thread drift part!)  tongue.gif  Oh, and I never knew what the front page was, so if it's entirely different and I don't have to go there, then whatever floats your boat.

As far as the main page, you folks need to have some faith wink.gif.  Has the NWHikers team let ya down so far?  OK, repress the memory of those internal server error messages for a sec biggrin.gif.  Not to worry, whatever we do we'll make sure the page loads lickety split and won't expose any secrets.  It may be a month or so down the road, but we've got some pleasant surprises in the works cool.gif.

At last - something we can all agree on.  agree.gif

.................

Pappy, thanks for the Delta pic kudos, but there are some better ones out there. This afternoon I'll see if I can't get folks to post some of them.

"If these places are so damn special then quit talking about them. Do not show photos.  And you damn well shouldn?t give trip reposts."

Now just why would you think those wanting some discretion and those posting trip reports on the web, are the same people? Of course it looks schizoid if you're not making the distinction! There are folks here who don't see a problem and post everything, there are folks here who do see a problem and keep mum, they are *not* the same person.

"Talk such talk behind closed doors."

Already do. Am I committing the grave sin of "secrecy" by not posting everything I know about everyplace I've ever been? The idea that this is secrecy just cracks me up. It's not "secrecy" in my opinion to have personal experiences and not report every detail, it's merely called discretion.

Thanks, BPJ.  This is now the Delta Lake pic thread. Let's see what you've got. I know Randy's got some 'cause I'm using two of them on my screensaver. Alpinejo's got a good panorama. And here's one that's "close" to Delta Lake.  dizzy.gif

I mentioned in an earlier thread my surprise at finding that the identifying photo in "Lakes of Washington" was that same view down the lake to tha Angeline outfall; surprising because most LOW photos are aerials

Now, I know Bryan's got Delta pics and I think Karen may, although maybe not in a format she can share. Anybody else?

Here's one more.
