Ken and Nick are seasoned mountaineers hailing from New Mexico.   On Beat Angel expeditions to the Desolation Peak and Winchester Mountain lookouts, they lugged water and other supplies up steep trails to support the camera crews.  Many thanks guys!
Camp follower (and aspiring screen actor?)
Ken and Frank are both happy to be on top of the mountain after the grueling all-day climb. That night, the crew was treated to a full lunar eclipse which was captured on film in the clear mountain air.
Nick rests on the lookout cabin's doorstep.
