To really appreciate this, click on the picture, then go "full screen." Next, use the + to zoom in and the arrow keys to move around. At first I thought "man, look at all the trash left on that mountain (along the leading edge of the glacial ice flow). Then, when I zoomed in, I realized that wasn't trash - it is hundreds of base camp tents for various expedition base camps! Amazing!

I'll bet every climber has at least one "Save the Planet" tee shirt. Disgusting.
Oh... great picture.:encouragement:

I know it's the wrong mountain, but someone should hack it and put the Ark on it.
