Diving in the Desert

My girls D & P along with myself of the world famous (in our minds) Team ODP adventure racing team have spent many a day "training" for our races by taking long weekends hiking, biking, and camping in beautiful places. This sort of training is very mentally taxing with very little reward along the way as you can see. Right. Every once in awhile, we would actually throw a race into the schedule, and usually always due to the worst navigation known to the human race or bringing an inflatable banana instead of a kayak, we would come in way below our desired results.

I am jonesn bad for some more training and as I look through pics on my computer, I realized that D has a natural inclination to jump off of objects in perfect form. Each photo was taken at a separate training ground in completely different parts of the great state of Arizona. From top to bottom: Flume Falls, Fossil Creek; Mooney Falls, Havasu; Bell Trail, Sedona
