I always loved being on top of that peak when the sun sets over the incoming ocean fog.

Just a side note... Back in those days I was a student, and I somewhat rushed at buying a digital camera without thinking of other items such as memory. Memory cards weren't too cheap at the time, so I always took shots at the lower settings and resized, etc... to save memory.

Like Geoff said, all one really needs is the memory, and the photo always brings that exact moment back to me. It was gorgeous evening. I only wish I had a flashlight for the way down... The poison oak was not fun (another memory the photo brings back).
