A lighter side of fourteeners, figuratively, clearly not literally
This is pretty funny. In a post on www.14ers.com, this guy has pictures of himself tossing a large rock off of 14,001-foot Sunlight Peak, relegating it to the status of "thirteener." Now, in a new post another climber has taken a large rock and lugged it back up to restore the mountain's "dignity."
And of course, this got other climbers on the thread talking about whether they could move a bunch of rocks on some high thirteeners, to make them fourteeners.
Not sure the USGS would go for that.
