Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ray.
And what a view it is! So proud of you (us)! smile XOX
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, M'am...Its mutual. X
that is quite an ascent, Frank. excellent view, for sure.
Frank L Croston.: It was indeed, Ayush, and yes, a great view.
I'm proud of you both and can just imagine the thrill of accomplishment this must have been, Frank. WOW.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Ginnie, once I got down it started to sink in what we had done, I did feel quite proud of us both, especially considering what we did the day before as well. An experience I'll never forget.

As you have lived to tell the tale, I assume you came down the slow way, Frank. I have great admiration for you both
Frank L Croston.: You would be right, Elisabeth, by the end, very slow...smile Thank you very much.
That would not be jump i hope.

Stunning picture Frank
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Bill, that would be quicker...But not very practical for the rest of the trip.
Worth the hike then Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Oh yes, what a place, we really enjoyed it...Afterwards! smile
I hope you had some time to contemplate the experience. It is a great accomplishment with great results. Congrats to both of you.
Frank L Croston.: Oh we did, we had lunch on the top and sat and took it all in. Thank you very much, Mary.
Well done Frank, this is certainyl a view worth all that effort, no doubt you took the easy way, not the quickest, to get down.
Frank L Croston.: Well it was the same way down as up,but not as exhausting, plus it was a good feeling having done it!

A bat suit, Frank... One...two.. three...off you go!

Incredible, I can't imagine what it must feel like to actually be there!
Frank L Croston.: It was great, Anne, I'd have liked it less crowded, but it was ok.
Quite spectacular. I am told that hang gliding is a fast way, but I would not recommend it. smile
Frank L Croston.: Isn't it just, no, I'm happy high up, but with my feet on the ground.

What a view, down this valley. Good thing that all your bones stuck together for the climb. You can be proud of them. If the quick way is motorised, take it - since you have deserved it.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Louis.I'm afraid the only way down was under my own steam...Which fortunately I was creating a lot of!
WOW... spectacular Frank...
did you get tired dragging me up the mountain... thanks for lending me a hand....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Isn't it great, Peter...No worries, you were no trouble! smile

Okay then..... make a run and go over the edge and open your parachute and ooooofffffffff we go...... HA... or this was not what you had in mind by a 'quick way'....??? What a spectacular view and yes you did it... Who would have thought after meeting Elizabeth...a dull life wink... Happy Easter.
Frank L Croston.: I took the safe way, Astrid...A happy Easter to you also.
