Did you know there are tons of trails just off the Vegas Strip? I had the pleasure of spending the weekend camping at the Valley of Fire about an hour northeast of Las Vegas, NV. I volunteered to help set up the Fire Fest Ultra staging area on Friday afternoon and then spent Saturday and Sunday taking photos of the runners. The entire weekend was super rewarding! As a runner, it is always a great feeling to be cheered on at random places along the course. Then to have a silly photo taken when you are least excepting it is even better. I had the opportunity to do both! As each runner passed, I ensured I applauded their success and captured their special moment.
