Tackling Mud and Mountains

My article, “Tackling Mud and Mountains,” is out in California’s Adventure Sports Journal! The publication is distributed free at outlets around California and parts of Nevada, including gear and outdoors shops. Read about why exactly a person would want to compete in the Squaw Valley Tough Mudder event, an untimed obstacle race that includes high-pressure water hosing, icy alpine swims and running through fire. Other cool stories in this issue include a dramatic, near-death climbing adventure on El Capitan in Yosemite and the story of a Bishop-based farmer and the catahoula dog he kept for a week before finding its rightful owner, and how that inspired him to adopt a rescue pup.
