I got an email this morning from REI asking for outdoor member photos. I looked through all 80 or so of them that they had and a lot of them reminded me of places I had been on my trip. In order to hopefully get my handstanding out in the public realm a little, I sent them the picture of me doing a handstand at Guadalupe Peak (8,751ft) which is the “Top of Texas”. I sent them this one because no one had a picture from Texas.

And now that I am writing this out, I realized I have a picture from “Angel’s Landing in Zion National Park which I will also upload because I did not see any from there!

I hope REI likes them and adds them to their photo gallery!

Survey about the size of photos on my site:
A: Keep large pictures because I love seeing them so big on your site!
B: Use the smaller images so I can read what you’re saying, then if I want to see the picture bigger, I can click on it.

    I don’t mind the big pictures — it was only really noticeable on your road trip when there were tons of them on a single page every day!

    Hey, probably not the place to put this, but me and my friends have 100s of handstand pictures and when we saw this we thought it was a brilliant idea. How did you manage to put a map like that on yuor blog?

    I like the name “Handstanding Monkey”, haha. I use http://www.blogger.com to keep track of the blogging/commenting/publishing part, but custom built everything else.

    If you’re interested in doing it yourself, I kind of had a plan to try and make this “Handstanding” thing more than just me, so I can help you out and get you a map like the one I have.

    I built the map using http://code.google.com/apis/maps/, with data from http://www.flickr.com/services/api/.

    Here is where I get all the data to make the map from: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ssaammee/sets/72157594289969939/

    Oh, and the verdict for picture sizes is… (Option B) for readability!

    Thanks for your votes!
