As seen on joe's page. SodaBoy took this shot at my request on the summit of Big Slide in the Adirondacks in 2004. Photographing the feet of the victorious hikers surrounding the benchmark has become one of my favorite hiking rituals. Evidence! Proof! Look, Ma! We really made it! The whole thing is downright silly: the majestic photos of the scenic vistas are clearly much more impressive. And we take those pictures, too, of course. But years later, when reminiscing over the old photos, the feet photos always wield a special power.
