You crazy fools! I love those pics...although I'm probably too big a chicken to ever show up in one like that. Beautiful and fun shots, thanks for the post.

Thanks for posting the beautiful photos! It was a great weekend. Anyone viewing the "leap of faith" photos please know they are deceptive. We are not that high off the rocks and nowhere near drop offs.

I suspected that but the photos were well done and it looks pretty real. You got me with 'em.

Thanks for allowing us to share (vicariate?) your adventure.
Looks like you lucked out - I mean "planned well" - in the weather department.

Leapin' lizards, guys! The pictures had me a bit worried, but I'm all better now, knowing it was trick photography. Do you think you could get a good shot of me pretending to jump off San Jacinto?

Seriously, though, it looks like you had a great time in fabulous conditions. Thanks for sharing the nice pics. Great job, guys!
