Thanks Adam. I'll take a look at it in BW, though I think it's almost that 
We ate every night at the Mountain Room restaurant and the scotch, after 
snowy day, certainly had a special feeling to it!
April should be great in the Valley; there's a lot of snow so the falls 
be at full tilt. Enjoy; much better time to go if you can avoid the spring

Really nice set, Bob. I got cold just looking at 'em! I wish I had been 
there so 
I could have stayed in the lodge, enjoy hot coffee/chocolate in the morning 
a single malt as darkness fell!

I love "Into the Mist" but feel it's an even strong image (to my eye) in 
B&W. I 
played with the image you posted a bit just to see and I think it's worthy 

Really nice images but if the wind were enough to knock over the tripod I 
wasn't so much on being out there. We're going in April with our bikes and 
hopeful we won't have similar weather!
