I had a great day out on Antelope Island taking pictures of Jim Skagg's Antelope Island Buffalo Run races. I hit the trail at 5:40am to get out ahead of the 50 mile runners and quickly over heated and had to switch into a short sleeve shirt, I could tell that Jim had paid off the weather gods again and it was going to be another speculator sunny warm day on the island. For some people the weather was a little to nice and there were a few complaints of cramping due to the heat, but for the most part everybody was ecstatic to be running snow free trails on such a perfect day. Jim's race seems to be getting bigger and better every year. Congratulations to everybody who came out and towed the line. I'll be uploading pictures to my flickr account soon.

"The Grandeur Peak fund raiser was born out of my passion for the Wasatch Mountains and my unusual escapades up Grandeur Peak. I want this fund-raiser to bring awareness to the unique air-pollution challenges we face living in the Salt Lake Basin, raise money for an exceptional non-profit group, and encourage folks to come enjoy a summit or two (or three or four…) on Grandeur Peak. Join me on March 3rd, 2012 at the Grandeur Peak west side trail-head, I’ll be going at it from about 6AM until midnight trying to reach the summit ten times. Make whatever donation you can or make a pledge of $1, 5, 10 or more for each time I reach the summit as I shoot for my goal, which equates to over 33,000′ of gain, more than doing Mount Everest from sea level. I will be wearing a SPOT tracker so you can monitor my progress online here."
