    ... of this mountain. Incredible! I wouldn't be able to draw the President's likeness, much less sculpt with these tools! I'm glad Wayne got to bring me here.... He said later... Well Pop, I got Deb here. (Since I couldn't go with them eight years ago). So, it kind of made the trip worthwhile for a very special reason. Also, ran into Lisa Moskios...

We drive on a narrow road with one lane tunnels, which are narrow and small. This road is definitely not RV friendly. We drive up and up into the hills.
