Nice shot & well done reaching the top of the US I doubt many could say they have done that ... awesome stuff.
thanks, but it's not really that lonely up there. 17,000 per year are heading up there. I've been there too many times to remember. It isn't easy, and people do die up there (one last week, falling off the trail in an easy area due to disorientation from altitude sickness).
Unlike the photo of the summit hut above, in August it really gets crowded up there. For kicks we counted how many people we met on the trail heading down, and it was 225 that day.
Here's the real view taken at the same time - another 20mm f/3.5 360 degree pano, and I could not get the people from jumping out in front of me to be in the panorama. One guy is actually twice in the image as he moved while I was rotating. Dark sky to the west and above, a lot of the haze is actually smoke from ma fire burning 40 miles away in the southwest.
