John Beard standing thousands of feet above the earth on this downed tree ;-)
He started up ahead of us, but I came upon him and his wife Marcy taking a fun break.
John just HAD to take my pic...
Looking down to the parking lot where the truck is parked.
Jim Ballard down below me
What didn't come out in the photo was a deer "running" down that cliff face to the left.
Trail ahead with distant mountains ahead
John and Marcy Beard and several others up ahead
Field of pretty yellow flowers with the San Juans in the distance
Island Lake from up top of Grant Swamp Pass
Looking to my left
Looking behind me towards Oscar's Pass, that switchback on the far mountain. To me that is the most difficult climb in the race.
Jim, Rick and Craig stopping to enjoy the beauty
Joel Zucker memorial up at 13,000'+
Deb is planning on leaving Tucker's collar here during the race instead of a rock, Joel would have loved Tucker.
Jim Ballard climbing up the scree of GSP with a splitting headache
Stop for a breather
Hi Jim! Almost there!
Rick, John and Marcy surfing the scree down GSP
John getting ready to take a picture of me taking a picture of him
Jim heads down after me
Craig, Jim and Jim sliding down...
Just snapped this during a lunch break....maybe a future finisher's print? ;-)
Jim, Jim, Craig, Kathy, Liz and Rick
Liz insisted I get into a picture, so I did.
This photo we're just showing Charlie Thorn how well we are doing in his absence
Whadaya think Charlie...is this good?
Taking a break at the Shepherd's camp
That's Grant Swamp Pass we ran down earlier
One of my favorite sections of the course....going into Chapman.
