That’s Some Harry Potter S#!t

Harry Potter Sh...

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I was able to get a couple of nice rides in and I think I have the details of the fitness challenged hashed out, so make sure to check out this weeks iPhone Friday when I will announce it. It should be fun, and I hope you decide to participate.

During a slideshow for some friends of our recent trip to Alaska, my buddy exclaimed…”That’s some Harry Potter S#!t!” when he saw this image. It made me laugh, and I thought it was an accurate description. I can’t take credit of this one, it is another image from my wife’s D5000. You can find other images from the flight around the summit of Denali in the series Approaching Denali.
