Hardrock 100 Photography

Digging through my memory card, here are the photos I captured at Hardrock 100 in Silverton, CO. Most of these are on top of Handies Peak, a 14,000+ foot climb that athletes must summit on their way through the San Juans, finishing back in Silverton after 100 long miles. The day was full of both snow storms and sunshine at the top. These photos are a bit of both.
