Phil Patch enjoying the deluxe accommodations of the Dow Villa. This is pretty much the way he sat in his office when he was my boss. Same look, likely same lower half attire.
Brent Norquist on the left, me on the right (in the back, not the women!!!) This is the beginning of Hogback where you can really make up time after hiking up Mt. Whitney.
Gary Bash with the incredible view of we just ran through. All jokes aside, the scenery was simply spectacular.
Gary's last view of us as we abandoned him. Notice the edge of the sun in the upper right: we were that close. Actually, it's Gary's thumb, being the master photographer he is.
More spectacular scenery. Gary is running toward me but despite the angle, he is heading downhill on Hogback road.
Getting closer.
And, the closest shot. Note his tremendous strides.
This is me getting my music ready. I think it's also Gary's cue that I will be lifting off soon. Oh, and the sun once again made an appearance in the upper right.
This was another scenery shot but I think Gary was falling down when he took it.
Phil coming up to one of the checkpoints. This was about the pace toward the end of the race.
Phil likely saying "Hurry the Hell up, Snapperhead!"
 The Four Horsemen at the conclusion of the race, cracking up a celebratory cold one.
