Wahsatch Steeplechase 2013

I have taken photos of the Wahsatch Steeplechase twice before focusing on the spiny rocky ridge up on Black Mountain. This year to mix things up I decided to stay lower pull out the telephoto lens and take a step back from my usual wide angle close shots. It was allot harder to get the shots I wanted without the natural dramatic affect of the ridge but hopefully I captured some of the beauty of the lower section of the course. Next year Ill focus on the decent from Smugglers Notch and lower City Creek Canyon. 
I  have a soft spot in my heart for the W.S., it was my first trail race I ever did and I give it credit for sparking my interest in ultra marathons and  I hope the race continues for many more years to come. Congratulations to race director Butch Adams,  the volunteers and all the runners of this years race.

Thanks for the post. The Wahsatch was also my first trail race. I thought I saw someone up high on a bump with a camera. Thanks for the pic. I found myself in pic #4...three people behind Pete Stoughton in the bright blue.
