Pack the gear, lace up the boots, and let's climb. Tarada tarada trada.
more like this. This is how a page of your photography would look
with the Smerelda flair. Keeping in mind I have no knowledge
whatsoever of mountain climbing! But if I had these wonderful photos
and had the thrill of the adventure, this is how I would document it.
I picked a couple of pics from your pages to use as an example. They
may not even go together but this is just an idea, because you seem to be trying so hard to learn this, and it's just NOT THAT HARD! Here I
would tell something leading up to the photo below.
More details and info about your adventure describing the climb
or anything that happened along the way. Feelings, expressions, even
doubts at this point would go good here. Using this text font makes a
nice "clean" page. Then lead up to something about the picture you
choose for below.
And finally...I think the picture below just begs to be used for the
of a perfect day. It is so beautiful! You could use this space to lead up
to it, or more details of the climb. These climbs are fascinating and
you should really do something with them.

I used 358 x545 for the pictures. It makes a nice size for display
loading. You can experiment with size simply by changing the size
checking out how it looks then changing back again. With your IE4
you can "copy and paste" all the html I have used on this page simply
by clicking "view" then "page source". Copy it, save it in Notepad,
then use all the html that is there, just change what is said in the text,
give it a name, and save it. You can then use the "custom" editor on
Tripod to create your page. Access the custom page editor, then "copy
and paste" all your info in there. I have found with Tripod that you
sometimes have to keep clicking "refresh" each time you edit to get the
latest changes you make. JUST JUMP IN AND TRY IT AND DON'T
GIVE UP. YOU WILL LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES WHILE
YOU ARE PRACTICING. I think you will find even after reading all
the books that you have to try it first because books are written in general
and not all browsers and editors react the same.
So you want to climb a mountain....
Here you could add some tips learned such as the following "swiped"
info *evil grin*
What to take.
The weather in Winter and early Spring is unpredictable. The temperature can be anywhere between very warm and freezing. Listen to the weather report
the day before the hike. Because of the snow, good hiking shoes are
necessary. Water sealant for them can be purchased. Take extra socks.
A water-proof warm jacket recommended.
Bring whatever you like. I will have a stove and will make tea and coffee. You can bring
instant soups too. Bring your own cup and spoon.
Other things you can take: sun glasses, sun block, ski poles, flashlight,
camera, matches, knife.
Ice crampons can be useful. 2-3 pairs can be rented from the recreation center. You can bring
something to sit on, otherwise you might have to eat standing or sitting in the snow.
Suggest bringing about 2000 to 3000 calories worth of food with you, light weight high in carbohydrates food. Variety is the key here.
Having enough water is crucial when hiking. From our experience, we would recommend taking between 2 and 3 quarts. HYDRATE, HYDRATE,
Solar toilets do not have any.
(I would then go either to another descriptive climb or simply label
it PHOTOS, rather than "next" link it up, and either create another
page or just use the ones you have. But use your first page to let
people know where they are going, or linking to.)
PS If you like music, and I put one of my favorites on here, What A Wonderful World, just find a midi you like and upload it to your tripod site, the use the
"edit" from the tripod editor, and add the midi into the script, where you see it added on this page. (Look at "view" "document source")
