Waiting around the Cedro Peaks aid station for the last runners to come in so we can begin our sweeping duties.
Manning the grill at Cedro Peaks
Some runners coming down the trail from Cedro Peak
Having a good day, obviously!
Started taking pictures on the out section of the Powerline, Kevin leading the way.
It was Hot and rocky!
David Coblentz coming down the powerline eating a popsicle
Neal Blake and first woman
This guy was hurtin'
...as was he...
...and this is why, a really steep climb!
Hmm, which way to go?
Nice forest down here in the Cibola
Deb cranking up another steep climb with course markers in hand
Now downhill and runnable
Turn your head to the left and this is an interesting flower in the middle of the trails.
Google won't let me rotate it, even though there is a rotate button!
Four Corners aid station volunteers.
Notice the peeps on the water jug ;-)
On we go....
Very runnable here...
About 4 flags too many here
Deb seemed to be leading the way most of the day
Several areas of nice open meadows
Coyote aid station
Wait up, guys!
This reminded me of a mini SOB ditch at Barkley
Starting up the really steep powerline section again
Steep and rocky down here
Easy to lose your footing and ending up on your butt
Kevin showing his downhill on loose scree prowess...
Ooops! That hurts...
It doesn't look it, but this is steep up
Deb and KZ coming up behind me
How the heck did this get up here?
Unmanned aid station on the powerline....no Popsicles left :-(
This ridiculously marked section slowed us way down...we had to untie all those ribbons in order to not injure the trees.
Which way? Ha!
These guys were everywhere....
Mountain views all around, this is from the top of Cedro Peak
Looking down the road I came up to Cedro Peak
Some towers up here
Now we're down at the Cedro Peaks aid station enjoying some brats and beer.
Deb is eating a hamburger and is a vegan ;-)
Steve, Kevin and Deb...
New York, NEW York!
Cedro Peak AS volunteers
On our way to the final aid station
Nice trail in here, reminded us a lot of the Massanutten trails in Virginia
Ridge very much like the MMT ridge in Va.
Deb removing one of the thousands of ribbons we removed today
Plaque up high
Nice job! (was written on the trail)
Some NM flora mixed in with the trees
Those mountains in the distance, upper right, were snow covered
Final aid station volunteers
Deb and Kevin finishing off what was left to get us the last 5 miles.
It got dark soon after this shot, so no more photos.
We did approx 33 miles of the 45 mile race in around 9.5 hours...a good ultra workout.
