Trail Portraits Project

I spent a lot of time this year on the trails, snowshoeing, backpacking, and running. Over the years, I've had the pleasure of meeting numerous incredible people on the trails and I decided to start a photography project to introduce everyone to them. Please check out my new Trail Portraits Project blog to meet these wonderful people.

I've been sidelined the last few weeks with what I believe is an "overuse" injury (pain behind the knee). This has kept me off the trails for the last three weeks. I have an appointment with the orthopedic doctor tomorrow, but that didn't keep me from running in Yosemite National Park this past weekend with Faye. The weather was perfect for running, the views were incredible, and I had a blast getting back on the trails after being idle for so long.

Western States 100

Faye and I volunteered at the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run this past weekend. We helped at the the Rucky Chucky river crossing, where the runners crossed the chilly American River at Mile 78. It was inspiring to see the runners push themselves to the limit, as they overcame near record temperatures in pursuit of the prestigious finisher's belt buckle.
