1. Mt. Waterman.  Film.

  2. Lichen, Pacific Crest Trail above Big Bear.  Much needed quiet, after last weekend’s weirdness and mess.

  3. Sunday morning at some point I should be about here, mile 93 or so into a 101 mile race - AC100.  This foggy shot was just a few weeks ago.  Summer was late in coming.  It didn’t hit in earnest until last week, so heat training/acclimation has been mostly done in saunas.  Not the ideal.  And it might just rain this weekend, too, which would be strange.  Or it will be like usual:  100 degrees in the canyons miles 25 - 50, and getting steamy the next morning here, stumbling into the finish.

  4. My feet, at Chantry, mile 75 of AC100, 2012.

  5. Chilao sunset.  Angeles National Forest.  We camped and ran the AC100 course in 3 days over July 4th weekend.  Story and pictures here.

  6. Bishop High Sierra 100K course.  See more  here.


  7. Half Dome from the Panorama Trail, Yosemite.  A shuffling recovery/tourist hike after Shadow of the Giants 50K.

  8. Heading up to Fishcamp, just outside of Yosemite, for Shadow of the Giants 50K, a stunning course that takes us through giant Sequoias.  This is a shot from last year, around mile 10 or so.  More pictures can be seen here. 

  9. My tent.  La Jolla Campground, near Pt. Mugu.  In a few hours there would be a handful more tents, and then the finish line of the Coyote Backbone 68 miler, a 68 mile race along the entirety of the Backbone Trail, which runs along the Santa Monica Mountains from Santa Monica to Pt. Mugu.  Shot on film, March 2014.

  10. Brown Mountain/El Prieto trail.  Just above Altadena, and at the top of the marine layer.  The city feels very distant.  Part of my never ending search for quiet

  11. Overlook Aid Station, mile 21 of the Bishop High Sierra 100K/50m, in the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains.  This is an incredible, scenic ultra, and at elevation - most of the race is around 8,000 - 9,500 feet.  I took third in my age division.  Read more about it here

  12. Bear Canyon.  And the post that goes with it: Wandering

  13. Mt Waterman.  This is a very special place.

  14. Mt. Lowe trail, in the fog.  San Gabriel Mountains
