Deb getting ready at Ouray
I'm now pacing her, we're climbing up Bear Creek trail
The pie plate section
Love this trail
Engineer aid station, mile 51.
John from Texas
Steve McClung and Deb not feeling so well
we're up near 13,000'
Rick Hodges in Grouse Gulch aid station
It was really cold here
The Grouse Gulch food tent
Looking back at Grouse Gulch as Deb and I leave
Deb heading up over Handies Peak, 14,000+!
She wasn't feeling so well, but made a go at it anyway
Looking back again, it's a long way to Sherman aid
Beautiful countryside of Hardrock on morning #2
More, looking towards Silverton
Looking back down again from where we came
Deb struggled up the climb
More of where we're going, heading towards American Basin
Handies Peak, 14,000+ and we're heading there!
Deb runs down into American Basin
A chipmunk blocks our way on the trail
Looking back at Sloan's Lake
Up and up we go....the air is thin, the body is tired.
Looking over into Boulder Gulch
UpChuck Ridge, the course used to go along that
It's getting harder....but she's doing it!
Deb tried to jog down with Gerry and Jennifer Roach just ahead on the summit of Handies
Looking down into Grizzly Gulch where we're headed
