The short of the story is that us 6 Idahoans (5 riders: me, Connie, Layne, Anne and Shyla, and Crew Master Regina) had a fun time at the Big Horn 100 in Wyoming. I was the only one who didn't finish - I pulled Dezzie at around 40 miles when he started to feel a little off.
You can read a ride recap here,
and stay tuned, because an alternate story may appear as a book or an e-book!
Meanwhile, here are a few photos from one of the most beautiful endurance rides I've done (and lucky me, I got the best scenery in the first 40 miles of the ride!):
This was our warm-up ride on Thursday, over the first 8 miles of trail we'd be riding over in the dark at 4 AM.
Going up the Dugway into the Big Horn mountains - looking back over our tailfeathers
Looking back down the Dugway over Dezzie's tailfeathers as the sun is rising. that's Connie on Saruq and Tom on Rocky
Top of the Dugway. Now heading back down… before heading up again
Finally on top top of the mountain, leaving the first vet check
We traversed so many beautiful meadows. The wildflowers were downright raucous (Connie took this pic)
