Woman running with her dogs across the famous and historical "No Hands Bridge" in Auburn, California the "Endurance Capital of the World!"
Wow, this threw me for a loop! This image was just licensed for 100,000! It will be used to promote the upcoming “Western States 100 Endurance Run,” which starts in Lake Tahoe and finishes here in Auburn.
This is by far the most money I have ever been paid for the use of a single image!
Just had to share the BIG news!
Have a great weekend!
PS – note the date!
Sherri & Cocoa out for a run in our rural Auburn, CA neighborhood.
Now that Fall has arrived here in the Sierra Foothill’s, I feel a lot more like going out for a run!
This image was taken near where we live in rural Auburn, California. Remember – great photographs can be found “Right in Your Own Backyard!”
When I developed this image in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2, I added a little fill light, increased the Clarity to 50 and the Vibrance to 70. If you are not using Lightroom, I highly recommend that you give it a try!

Woman running with her dogs across the famous “No Hands Bridge” in Auburn, California.
I chose to feature this photo in my “Wednesday’s WOW” post for a couple of reasons.
First of all, I really like it and secondly the annual Western States 100 Endurance Run is coming up June 27-28. If you have never heard of this race, it is a 100-mile foot race which starts in Squaw Valley, California and winds up in Auburn, California 100-miles later. The participants of this race will cross No Hands Bridge minutes before reaching the finish line at Placer High School. NOTE: This bridge is in both El Dorado and Placer counties.

In case you haven’t heard, California is on fire. In Northern California alone, an estimated 200,000 square miles have already burned. Most of the several hundred fires burning are due to the several thousand lightening strikes from earlier this week. [click to continue…]
Wild Sierra Iris growing along the Poppy Loop Trail at Hidden Falls Regional Park, in the Sierra Nevada Foothills, Auburn, California
One year ago this past Thursday, Jeff and I spent our 25th anniversary adventuring in Cabo San Lucas. This year we spent it adventuring in our own neck-of-the-woods. Although it wasn’t near as wild as our week in Cabo, it was wild of a different nature.
It was wild as in “wildflowers.”

Mother and daughter running on the Quarry Road Trail, Auburn State Recreation Area, Auburn, CA
If you are looking for a trail in the Auburn area suitable for baby strollers, the Quarry Road Trail can’t be beat! It parallels the Middle Fork of the American River, it’s easy and it’s wide.

Woman running in Panorama Park, Bakersfield, California.
As mentioned in a previous post, Panorama Park is great for running, walking, walking your dog and bicycling to name just a few.
For us, it’s a great place to work off the calories from our Thanksgiving feast. Apparently, a lot of other people feel the same way, as there is always a steady flow of people exercising there every year when we visit!
Photo – Sherri & Cocoa running along the Deschutes River
This 3.5-mile loop trail runs around the entire La Pine State Park Campground and is great for running, hiking and mountain biking.

I was also hoping to photograph someone running with their dog/s on this trail during our hike last Sunday. That didn’t “pan out.” So, it was my turn to be the model for these shots. The Sagehen Creek Trail is a perfect running trail, as well as a hiking trail. It follows Sagehen Creek, winds through Aspen groves and pines and eventually ends up at Stampede Reservoir.
And best of all, it is a “dog friendly” trail!
