Furnace Creek 508

My most favorite cycling event, the Furnace Creek 508 was this weekend. It is a test of endurance that takes riders from LA through Death Valley, Baker, Kelso, Amboy and finishing in my old stomping grounds, 29 Palms. This is some of the most brutal country in North America and it is also some of the most beautiful country in the world. I guess the desert grows on you; it becomes a part of you.

Here are some photos from the race. I like this grave yard of DNFs. The route profile will give you an idea of the difficulty of this race.
