2016 Top of the Rock photos by Peter DeMott:
Challenging trails at TOP OF THE ROCK Endurance Ride
It was great photographing the Top of the Rock endurance ride at Deem Lake. The weather was pretty good although it did get pretty hot and humid for the horses and riders and there and that played a part in the competition rate.
Many of the trails, I was told, were closed due to logging that was going on in the park so for the 50’s there was one grueling loop that everyone was talking about. Slippery, rocky, and steep for miles it seemed. Many people used almost all their time getting through.
