2009 Appalachian Mountain Club Photo Contest

I was quite pleased to have two winning photos in the 2009 Appalachian Mountain Club Photo Contest. This was the 15th annual contest and the third time that I have submitted entries. It was all done digitally this year through the AMC Flickr page.

Title: Comparing Loads

I took this photo during our June hut to hut trip in the White Mountains. We met Hut Croo member, Taylor Burt, just as he was starting up the Old Bridle Path on the way to Greenleaf Hut. Croo members are famous for carrying huge loads.

Calm Before the Dinner Storm

I took this photo only a matter of hours after the photo of Taylor, Debbie, and Shep. We had gotten settled at Greenleaf Hut and had dinner. Everyone was outside, lounging on rocks, and taking in the incredible evening light. The cloud formations on the Franconia Ridge were beautiful. I took a lot of photos of the mountains, but it was the illuminated kitchen that caught my eye. I captured the image.

The other 10 photos honored are fabulous.

We explored a few historic mill sites in #Dobsonville and #Talcottville on our way from #Vernon to #SouthWindsor via #mountainbike They only had black and white back when these old New England factories were pumping out textiles. #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #sevencycles #islabikes

Great Friday morning #carfreecommute Tomorrow is a big day for the @eastcoastgreenway Workers will install these pre-fab steel spans on two gaps in the Manchester to Bolton connection. One will cross Camp Meeting Road. I also cut through #WickhamPark for the first time in 2018 and spent some time with my deer 🦌 friends. It looks like the worst park roads will get some much needed maintenance. #eastcoastgreenway #railtrail 🚴🏽

My first #carfreecommute since I upgraded my Nashbar panniers (good value) to a new custom set from @dillpicklegear These beauties are #madeinusa and a better match for my @seven_cycles Axiom SL. They work fine in cold weather. Where is spring? ❄️ The landscape image with the logs and solar panels is the start/finish of the fiend Silk City Cyclocross at Manchester Community College. I love solar, but the soccer and baseball fields are gone, which is sad. #sevencycles #teamhorstsports
Fun day at the MT. TAMMANY 10 ultra in #delawarewatergap @trailrunningmom ran 10 hours and 20 minutes or so for 38+/- Miles and 12,000 feet of up and 12,000 feet of down. I’ll have a race report and more photos tomorrow night. #mttammany #trailrunning #ultrarunning #mttammany10 #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports 🏃🏻❄️⛰📷
Images from 1) The Start and 2) End of Loop One at the MT. TAMMANY 10 ultra in #delawarewatergap @trailrunningmom and about 39 other whackos have 10 hours to complete 10 four mile loops including the 1,200 foot ascent(and 1,200 foot descent) of #mttammany That’s a lot of up and down on snowy, icy, rocky, and rooty trails. This is Deb’s version of a scrimmage. She is working her way back into shape after the long layoff since #cascadecrest100 last summer. I’m happy to just watch this one. #trailrunning #ultrarunning #mttammany10 #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports 🏃🏻❄️⛰📷
