Last post for a few days...



Hopefully in a few days you'll be rewarded with some guest photographer shots from the Grand Canyon. Bill borrowed my camera (which I borrowed from Grayson...) when he left today for Las Vegas. He is teaching a class there tomorrow and then, um... doing a rim-to-rim hike/run of the Grand Canyon on Friday. He's done all the research, and has talked to folks who've done it before, so in that sense he's well-prepared. He's got his electrolyte tablets, and headlamp, and camelback, and flares, and powerbars, and all that stuff. But if you, dear readers, are the praying kind, I'm sure he wouldn't mind having a few of those sent his way! I am hoping that all the critters who hunt during the night (he has to begin around midnight in order to complete it before the hottest part of the day) will leave him alone. Thankfully he's got quite a few adventure races under his belt to give him experience in extreme conditions, but... I still worry! Whether he slows down enough, or remembers, to take photos...I don't know. But I hope he'll get a few.

I love this photo!

It is so neat how Bill has found something he loves and is giving it his all. I'd be more than a little worried, myself!

I love this photo! Everything about it is perfect: the lines, the cropping, the color shades. Brava.

Great photo!

We were at the Canyon eleven months ago and really loved it. We camped on the North Rim and could see the Canyon through the trees of the campsite across from us.

Already prayed for Bill to have a wonderful and safe experience.
