Lakes of the Clouds
Hi, Thanks for putting up the Franconia Ridge article. It's been needed for a long time. Could you provide some back-up, however, on your statement that Franconia Ridge is different from the Franconia Range? I've always seen them used interchangeably. The Board on Geographic Names, for instance, doesn't even have "Franconia Range" listed, except for a completely different range down near Keene, New Hampshire. If you have some reliable sources that show where else the Franconia Range goes besides the Ridge (perhaps over to Garfield?), could you then convert the Franconia Range page from a redirect to an actual article and explain the difference? Thanks, --Ken Gallager (talk) 19:49, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
- Hello again. I guess not Garfield. I finally pulled out my copy of the AMC White Mountain Guide (26th ed., 1998) and looked through the chapter on the Franconia, Twin, and Willey Ranges. The "Geography" section talks about the Franconia and Twin Ranges forming a ring around the western half of the Pemigewasset Wilderness, then on page 141 describes the summits in the Franconia Range, mentioning all the major ones in the Wikipedia article, plus the auxiliary peaks such as Eagle Cliff and Coolidge Mountain. At the bottom of page 141, the guide says, "The Twin Range is connected to the Franconia Range by Garfield Ridge", which sounds pretty clearly to me that Garfield is not considered part of the Franconia Range. I suppose you could make a case that the lesser peaks such as Eagle Cliff and Coolidge are "Range" and not "Ridge", but you could just as easily say they're simply side peaks and that the Ridge and the Range are essentially synonymous. Do you have any other sources that indicate a difference? --Ken Gallager (talk) 23:27, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
License tagging for Image:Saddleroute.JPG
Thanks for uploading Image:Saddleroute.JPG. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image.

Alpine Zone / Alpine zone redirect problem
IMHO this is seriously broken behavior. Both of these should redirect to the same article (or we should have a standalone article on this topic.)
It might be a good idea to merge some existing content from these articles.
I'm contacting people who apparently worked on these. Would greatly appreciate your thoughts at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Ecology#Alpine_Zone_.2F_Alpine_zone:_Bad_redirects_need_fix.
Thanks. -- Writtenonsand (talk) 21:01, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for the photos
Your photos are beautiful. I'm late reporting this but I want to tell you that I uploaded some of your Commons photos of the White Mountains to my Wikipedia page. New Hampshire is one of my favorite places--I head there at least once a year and sometimes two or three times a year. I like to look out at the mountains, even if I can't be there and have to rely on photographs. Of course, nothing beats hiking in the Whites.Iss246 (talk) 15:01, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
