COOPERS ROCK 50K & Half Marathon Photos

On April 8th, I had the pleasure of shooting the COOPERS ROCK 50K & Half Marathon. It was a beautiful day and the stoke was high (even with the sub freezing morning temps). In typical WV spring fashion, Coopers Rock was covered with 3in of snow at 6am, and by 2pm it was 60°F and all the snow had melted.  The photos below are a few that stood out, but here’s a link to the rest of the images from the race.

This is a rocky, challenging, and scenic trail race at Coopers Rock State Forest in north central West Virginia. The 50 km course covers nearly every trail on the south side of the forest, features several scenic viewpoints, and has 4000 feet of elevation gain. The half marathon course is a shorter version of the same trails and has 1500 feet of elevation gain.

RootsRated Assignment in Patagonia

I just got back from 2 weeks in Chile photographing an assignment for RootsRated, Marmot, and Exofficio, and I’m excited to share some of the images and stories captured along the way. I’ll have my own personal selects online in a few days, but here’s the official release to keep the stoke alive.

Cheat River Interview

The following are my responses to a recent FOC interview about the upcoming Cheat River Festival…

What was it like growing up in the Cheat River Watershed?

It gives and it takes..and gives.

My entire immediate family comes from the Cheat River Watershed. My Mom (Kathy DeWitt, previously Overbeck), grew up in Albright, where my Grampa Vic was the post master and Grama Betty was a school teacher.

Aside – When my mom was a kid, almost every weekend there was a white water rafter or guide having dinner with her and her family.  Vic and Betty Overbeck (my grandparents) welcomed them.  Many boaters put in the river across from her house. My mom and aunts would would serve breakfast to the boaters at times at the Fire hall the Albright fire department.

In 1985, the Cheat River destroyed 110 of the 132 houses in Albright.. my mom’s house being one of them.

Fast forward to today, I frequent the Cheat River whenever possible…to swim along the Alley…
