"Up to a point a man's life is shaped by environment, heredity, and movements and changes in the world about him; then there comes a time when it lies within his grasp to shape the clay of his life into the sort of thing he wishes to be. Only the weak blame parents, their race, their times, lack of good fortune, or the quirks of fate. Everyone has it within his power to say, this I am today, that I shall be tomorrow."
-- Louis L'Amour, The Walking Drum
This is a view from about 12,000ft on the side of the Grand Teton, taken on my most recent ascent in 2010. Below is the Snake River valley with Blacktail Butte the low, forested hill in the middle right.
