Good job on getting up to see the sunrise - I wish I had someone in my house who was willing to do that:) Also nice work on the pipes!

This is so cool. Are there photos? I'm picturing a piper silhouetted against the rising sun and mountains below.

am I not friends with you on Facebook? Maybe you've blocked me because I can see your posts... Anyway, I did post some pictures and so did Andree! If you can't find them, let me know - there were some cool photos even if I say it myself!

Impressive! You probably don't need to get that far away from population centres to pipe! Maybe 5 km is far enough?

Haha... Actually the people coming up said they could only hear me a short distance down! One woman said it was the highlight of her summer! Obviously, none of them really knew what it should sound like! Especially at first when I was still recovering my breath, it was pretty bad: Amazing Grace as the sun started to rise above the mountains!

Tangent: are you familiar with Gary the Cat, the adventurous feline that lives in your part of the country? His pictures are quite spectacular, especially for a cat:

I am pretty sure it was Gary we met when Marsha, Christin and I went up Ha Ling last summer! He was on his way up when we were going down. A very friendly cat!
