Featured Event: Nash Ranch Mud Mash 2014

Nash Ranch Mud Mash 2014

"The fields of the historic Nash Ranch set the stage for the annual Mud Run where you will experience the best Mother Nature has to offer. This fun course will challenge your body and your tolerance for getting down right dirty! Among others, you can expect to slither through mud pits, scale wooden obstacles, swim across a pond, and slide down a mud hill on your quest to conquer all of the challenges. Should you choose, this year's race will include the "Gladiator Pond Loop" ~ a one mile extension that is the most difficult challenge any racer will find this year at any mud run in Shasta County."  From the Nash Ranch Mud Mash website.

Northern California Landscapes

Castle Lake AT Skiing

Castle Lake AT Skiing

Every year there are a few hundred crazy people in far northern California that adventure into the backcountry to seek soft white snow and solitude. This photo was captured after an epic ski-down from the peak in the upper left of the photograph. Chris (me) and Mike (dad) were winded, excited, and totally thrilled to be outside and alone in such a beautifully epic outdoor environment. Technically, this photo is not perfect, but in my heart, this is perhaps as close to perfect of a moment I will ever experience; for me, this is winter.
