Crosstoberfest is almost here!
If you ever find yourself in the situation of being face to face with a band of sheep know this – if you look at a sheep it stops dead. I’m not sure what’s running through it’s head (it could be “That’s one weird looking human” or “Isn’t my wool pretty?”). Regardless they will stare at you until you give them a sign that they should be doing something else. Like moving, for example.
Have a happy weekend!
Lava Lake uses primarily Great Pyrenees as their guard dogs. Known for their protective nature and sometimes scary demeanor, these dogs do a fantastic job of keeping the sheep bands safe from predators.
This Great Pyrenees was taking a little snooze in the shade during Saturday’s BBQ. Looks viscous, no?
My volunteer duty at the Galena Grinder was to sit at the very last trail junction and call out racer’s numbers to the timing booth at the finish. This allowed the timing booth to announce the finisher’s name as they completed. About halfway through my duty the race director, Marc, delivered me an ice cold Miller High Life. I was understandably excited.
The marathon race at the Galena Grinder was a grueling 45 miles. The winner completed the race in a nauseating 3 hours and 39 minutes.
Congratulations to all the riders in the Galena Grinder! Caught this shot as the pro, expert and sport riders were leaving the start.
