Montrose Mud Moto Mayhem

This weekend was the first Montrose EnduroCross race of the year. I got to go and take photos again. It was a terrible, rainy, muddy, sloppy, gross mess. And I loved it! 🙂 The racing was great, although a little slower and rougher than normal. Fantastic day of racing!

Olathe 3D Archery Shoot

Today I got the chance to go out to my first ever archery shoot. I was very happy for the chance to go out and watch (and photograph) some really great archers. I love archery and am going to get some more advanced training and start bow hunting soon. Maybe I’ll even compete next year 🙂

Here’s a little sampling of the action from Olathe today. Enjoy!

XGames 2014 Preview

This was the big weekend. This was XGames weekend in lovely Aspen, Colorado. Living just 3 hours away from Buttermilk Mountain, I have the luxury of scooting over to XGames for a while, even if I have to be back in town to take my kid to school in the morning. This year I did just that for Thursday night’s events, then I got to go back for the rest of the weekend with my hubby. It was a great time, even if we didn’t stay for the night events on Saturday or Sunday… 🙂 It was cold and I was lacking in cool-guy wool socks. I will have to invest in some this year. I am in the process of processing my images, so here are a few to whet your appetite.

Montrose Homecoming Football

Tonight was the homecoming football game for Montrose High School. They played Hinkley High School from Aurora. Well, they destroyed Hinkley, really. The final score was 49-6, Montrose. Despite the one-sidedness of the scoreboard, it was a very exciting game.

Here are some of the highlights.
(Montrose is black and red, Hinkley is white and blue, for inquiring minds)

September Horse Races

Saturday and Sunday of this week brought the final installment of horse races in Montrose for the year. Sunday’s races were great – Not too hot, not windy, exciting action, and more importantly, no one got hurt. The turnout for Sunday wasn’t as impressive as it has been, but I think everyone that was there was having a great time.  I’m already itching for June and the next round of Black Canyon Horse Racing Association races! (There is also rumor of possibly pairing the races up with some other infield events next year for some added excitement…)

Here are Sunday’s highlights!



Here are a few bonus shots from race 3, by special request –

Grand Junction SX

Last weekend was the (mostly) annual Grand Junction SuperCross. I had an awesome time doing pictures and running into some friends that I hadn’t seen for a while. There were a bunch of really close and exciting races. The track got pretty dusty in the last couple of races, which made for some tough shooting conditions, and some tough riding conditions. Here are my favorite shots from the evening’s races.

Back to the (horse) Races Again

It’s summer again here on the Western Slope of Colorado and that means that it is once again time for the Black Canyon Horse Racing Association race meets! The local horse races are among my favorite summertime activities; they are cheap, family-friendly, fun, and most of all they are great opportunities for me to get my camera out and do what I do.

Although I couldn’t make it outfor Saturday, I did get to go out and enjoy all of Sunday’s races. Here are the highlights!

 

If you’re still looking for more awesome Black Canyon Horse Racing Association race meet photos you might want to check out my posts from last year’s races. June 2012 and September 2012. I also have pictures from the race meet at the 2012 Montrose County Fair & Rodeo, along with shots from the fair parade and the rodeo.

Mud Fest 2013

This past weekend (April 26-28) was the second annual Ouray County Mud Fest in Ridgway, Colorado. It was a great weekend of spectacular, muddy fun! Like everyone else that was there, I am very glad that the Mud Fest has been made an annual event in Ridgway. All of the event coordinators, vendors, and sponsors did a wonderful job.

I was slightly disappointed in the fact that I only got to attend Sunday’s events, but even one day was well worth it. Just on Sunday there were side-by-side mud run finals, 4×4 finals and exhibition, and the truck pull – along with a bunch of family-friendly activities (even some that weren’t mud-related!).

Hopefully next year I’ll be able to make it out for the whole weekend, but here are my highlights from Sunday’s events.

Enjoy!

If you want to see more truck (and tractor) pull pictures you might enjoy my post from the 2012 Montrose County Fair truck pull.

XGames Aspen 2013 – Part 2 of 2

As good of a day as Saturday was, Sunday may have even been a little better! Maybe it was just that the lighting was better, maybe it was the fact that my toes stayed a little warmer (hand warmers literally rocked my socks!). Sunday afternoon featured SnoCross and Adaptive SnoCross, and Men’s and Women’s SlopeStyle Skiing. It was an amazing last day at the 2013 Aspen Winter X Games. Here is how Sunday went at Aspen X.

XGames Aspen 2013 – Part 1 of 2

What a weekend it was!

Saturday and Sunday I got to hang out at the Aspen Winter XGames with my husband. I spent all day taking pictures and it was an amazing time. Saturday was filled with Snowmobile Speed & Style and Snowboard SlopeStyle. Sunday was all about SnoCross and ski SlopeStyle. (We cut out before the night events on both days). Here are the highlights from Saturday’s events.

Be prepared for part 2 tomorrow – Sunday’s fun!
