Couple of days of playing Huck Finn on the river with friends. No blisters from hiking, with no motor, can carry 3 of us and 300 lbs of stuff.
Well, I built me a raft and she's ready for floatin'
Ol' Mississippi, she's callin' my name
Catfish are jumpin'
That paddle wheel thumpin'
Black water keeps rollin' on past just the same

.......And I ain't got no worries
'Cause I ain't in no hurry at all

My car is actually bigger than that, but on camera, and at that altitude and the atmospheric pressure from the gathering storm clouds, it just 'looks' out of proportion.


Sometimes it will be a sunny cloudless day, but by the time you get up there, all you can see is whiteout:


Then other times it can be simply gorgeous:
