Emily told me she had a surprise for me after work. We both love to stay busy, but our schedules have been ESPECIALLY jam packed lately. Not only are we going to Kauai, getting married and honeymooning this year, but we also just bought our first house! Excitement paired with stress, less money and less time spent together.
Just cause I shoot mostly landscape photos doesn’t mean I can’t get down and dirty on the race track. Emily and I grabbed the telephoto and our sunnies and drove out to Spokane County Raceway Park to shoot a drift event.
First pioneered by John Muir in 1873, this straight shot for Whitney's summit is 9 miles round-trip with over 6000 feet of elevation gain. That's 6000 feet in 4.5 miles. And to top it off, a good 40% of the route is steep talus and skree.
