Iin all her mystery and beauty, Mt. Mather, ever the temptress....but oh so enchanting and fickle.  Sigh. To give you a sense of scale, you should know that we zoomed in (210 mm) maximum from a distance of approximately five miles.  The cornice you see cresting the ridge peak above the largest avalanche and icefall is probably on the order of 100 feet high.  The height from the peak to the bottom of the photo is approximately 3000 feet.  A human standing at the top would be, at best, a speck in this photo and probably not resolvable with your monitor.
