Diamond Ridge, looking into Victor Creek drainage, 2014 IMTUF.

2014 IMTUF, Victor Creek Trail, looking towards the Warren Wagon Road side.  We call this section the "Whispering Woods."  Spooky place in a wind storm.

Marking IMTUF, Loon Lake Loop section with then Payette Nat. Forest Supervisor Keith Lannom.  A longtime McClassic Vet.  I think he's done all of them over the years.  He's registered for the 50K in July 2024!

Old mining implements in the hills above Burgdorf.

Crossing beautiful Lake Creek near the start/finsih area.  This is the sensitive, pristine headwaters of the North Fork of the Payette River and makes it critical that we run a low impact event.

Coming back to the truck after a long run on Bear Pete to see that a bear has tried to enter.
