This is headed up to Lightening Ridge, right in the middle top is where I am headed. 2500’ of elevation in 3 miles.
That is Lightening Ridge, tons of flowers it was a beautiful morning, #35 never saw me again.
Getting ready to make the traverse across the ridge, sun’s coming up looking north.
Trail heading north, dropped down into the saddle and then it was a downhill slide to Big Springs aid station at mile 24
Looking down, back side of Lightening ridge, Big Springs here I come.
Headed up towards Windy Pass
Wayne giving me the big thumbs up! Windy pass is in our sights.
I am happy to get this climb done. Looking pretty good for 30 miles under my belt. What a great day.
Looking towards the back side of Mt Timpanogos we started down in the meadow, 3200’ vertical and 5 miles ago.
Here we go. A picture near Dry fork, this is where we got of course 62 just wasn’t enough for a couple of over achievers like Wayne and I. 75 miles is a lot.
Here I am at the finish with John Bozung the race director who organized this debacle. Finisher !
This I what my dirt tan looked like once I peeled all my clothes away. It was worse than it looked.
Now you know what a pair of legs and feet look like after 20 hours and 75 miles. Sexy!
