    Wherever you hike, hit the trail early in the morning at first light before the other hikers stir and you'll most likely get some great shots. Move quietly into the wind and keep a watchful eye up...

    I'll never understand why some people do things like this. I hope this dirt bag gets to share a cell with BIG BUBBA, who gets a daily triple dose of Viagra!
