    LOL. That pic was taken about 500 ft. from my place........:rotfl:

    Yeah, the mountains sure look pretty that time of year, eh? The mountains are named(from left to right):

    - The Prow (because it looks like the front end of a ship coming from behind the mountains)

    - Mt. Lawrence Grassi (named after a old miner who built some hiking trails)

    - Miner's Peak (I don't think that needs an explanation)

    - Ha Ling Peak (formerly known as "Chinaman's Peak". Named after a Chinese railroad laborer from the late 1800s who won a bet that he could reach the peak and get back to town in 12 hours.)

    Cold is all in the head.
    Nothing a little whiskey can't cure anyhow.

    So, if Can-Can get's to the Peak and back to town in 8 hours (on foot of course), will they rename it "Paul's Peak"
