This remarkable event challenges up to 35 teams of two or three ultrarunners – running together as duos or trios for the duration, NOT in a relay – to tackle an unimaginable traverse of Southern California deserts and mountains. The route covers 81 miles (130km) non-stop from below sea level at the shoreline of the Salton Sea, across, up, and over Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, to the top of Palomar Mountain with a dramatic view of the Pacific Ocean.

March 24 - 28

A trek with Anne along a section of the Great Alleghenny Passage (GAP trail) from Meyersdale to Connellsville,

 
 


Our journey to the GAP trail began with a flight to Pittsburgh, then an Amtrak train ride to Cumberland from where we would be shuttled -together with a rental bike for Anne - to our starting point at Meyersdale. The train (the Amtrak 'Capitol') was scheduled to leave Pittsburgh at the early hour of 5:30 am; but was announced to be running 4 hours late. Instead of waiting for hours in the austere Amtrak station I took an unexpected opportunity walk with my camera around Pittsburgh.

Bombay Beach

On the shores of the Salton Sea, the near-ghost town of Bombay Beach hosts a fascinating collection of art and sculpture that suspends all preconceptions of what a small town is or should be. Bombay Beach Arts & Culture have organized the transformation and creation of pieces of art around the town. Hosting artists in residence, they have achieved a quirky and intriguing collection that is highlighted during the Bombay Beach Biennale, an annual renegade celebration of art, music, and philosophy.
