Back to Gargoyle Ridge

The first time we flew past Gargoyle Ridge my camera had just died from the effects of cold on the battery.  I am certain this is because I did something really evil in a previous life.  Redemption came on New Years Day, when we got another pass at the Ridge.  (Gargoyle Ridge is really Nichols Ridge, named after Robert L. Nichols, an American geologist.)   Here are some more photos of Gargoyle Ridge.
