Spook Run Endurance Ride 2012 - Peter Demott

near Henryville Indiana with 25,50,100 mile events

The weather was not very nice of Friday for the Endurance rides scheduled that day, but Patty and I cannot go to Friday rides because we both work so after work on Friday we drove to the ride site and set up camp in the rain. The next morning Patty would participate in her first 100 mile endurance ride.

On Saturday it was still drizzling and shortly stopped raining making for some great photos of the event.

Mt Carmel Day 4 - Steve Bradley

Got Day 4 photos uploaded. Decided on a spot up "Flat Rock Wash". It was early in the morning and the morning sun was pretty nice. Not sure how many took the trail this morning but it was a little slower speed than I have seen in days prior.

Here is the direct link to today's photos!i=1829970182&k=VsWPHSS One more day to go and lots of smiling faces.....

Happy Trails,

Mt Carmel Day 3 - Steve Bradley

May 4 2012

Just got done uploading the photos from Mt. Carmel Day 3. These were shot in "Red Canyon" and it is sure got the right name. It was real pretty down in there just before the sun came over the ridge and "brightened" things up. The colors are real spectacular just before the sun hits the canyon. If anyone has a friend or relative riding day three you need to go have a look as they came out pretty nice this year.

Looked like about 45 riders took the trail this morning under clear skies and everyone is still having a good time. Three days down, two to go.....

Mt Carmel Day 2 - Steve Bradley

Photos from Day 2 are up at the web page:!i=1827301125&k=8wnpDc8

I went out around 18 miles this morning as they were riding the "Rim of the World" trail today. The views were stunning from up there. Some of the red rock cliffs can be seen in the photos and all 50 riders had a great time today or so it was reported to me as they were passing my location.

Two days down three to go, getting better each day....

Happy Trails,

Mt Carmel Day 1 - Steve Bradley

May 2 2012

Just finished uploading the photos from Day 1. It was a pretty good day, 59 riders took the trail with a nice cool partly cloudy morning. The clouds went away and it didn't get above 70 all day. Great for the horses and riders as well. If you want to go and check out the shots from today they are here:!i=1825666770&k=vjdKc2j

Tomorrow ride goes out to the "end of the world" trail, weather says more of the same so it should be good tomorrow too.

Happy Trails,

2012 New Cuyama Oaks XP - Lynn Glazer

March 27 2012

A dry winter, late season storms combined for a springlike appearance to this favorite ride of mine, both to ride and to shoot, although without the spectacular display of wildflowers normally present. Around 100 riders on the 55 on the first day headed "up the mountain" because it is not do-able in wet weather, predicted for later in the weekend. I had a 300 gal water tank with the dual mission of shooting near the top and providing refreshment, since it was an out and back trail. Unfortunately I found that "rock with my name on it", losing a chunk of sidewall on a nearly new tire and scooting to a safe spot to change it. The riders ascended through fog, mist, and had snow on the roadside as well. This area had burned a few years ago, so the views are spectacular as the greenery regenerates. So the first day's shots are near and in the out vet check, and everyone at the finish, a sunny day after the burnoff. Diane Stevens came in first and got BC.

The second day began with gray skies, a very light mist and some fog--I shot in Cottonwood Canyon, where there were some early clumps of yellow bush flowers. The fog burned off to a very sunny and mild day, which I enjoyed staying in the sun for some midday glary shots as the riders left lunch in camp. Catfish Moe had trailered in for the day and finished first, Susan Garlinghouse had finished 2nd and won BC. The Nicholsons presented a panoramic metallic photo of Cottonwood Canyon to ranch owner and endurance rider Jim Mitchell for all his hard work and long years of hosting, from my first year shooting there in 2008. Karen Chaton was awarded with XP Horseman of the Year for her 3K accomplishment, and her Granite Chief won Horse of the Year. Other year end awards were presented as well.

The expected rain came in Saturday night, somewhere around 30 intrepid pairs headed out Sunday morning to do the "rain loop" twice. I'd had enough of driving adventures, so with no spare, I opted to stay in Schoolhouse Canyon at my usual spot for the first morning--contrast the appearance in my old galleries for the last two years! The riders seemed very happy to see me out shooting near the end of the first loop; I was comfortably attired as was my camera with its heavy duty rain shield, first put to the test the day after Tevis in Auburn. Susan Garlinghouse finished first on John Henry and won BC, fastest overall for the 3 days and 3 day BC.
