What a beautiful venue. I'd say that race was worth whatever the entry fee was.

Breathtaking photos!

The "nap in the moss" looked especially nice.

You can't take a nap in a cold corn field.....

I second that - the "nap in the moss" looks very relaxing ... and beautiful.

Glad you "enjoyed" the climb on your hands and knees!
