Utah Tubbs Romp to Stomp

We just returned home from a great weekend in Park City, Utah. I photographed the Utah Romp to Stomp on Saturday, then a day of skiing at Deer Valley with friends, and a big SuperBowl party with our old neighbors. My buddy, and fellow photographer, Bill Milner of Milner Photography in Salt Lake City helped me shoot the Romp.

The Romp to Stomp is a fundraiser for the Susan G. Komen Foundation for breast cancer, and is held in 6 cities across the United States - you can join their Facebook Fan Page and see more images online. Operating since 2003, the Romp to Stomp has raised over $1 million dollars for breast cancer research. There are 3k and 5k snowshoe walks and races, and participants dress up in beautiful pink outfits and crazy team outfits. It's really a beautiful event - this is the third Romp that I have photographed!

A slideshow of the Utah Romp can be viewed here...

And an online album of the day's photos here...

And a few of my favorite photos of the day...

This last photo of Danelle Ballenger, an extreme athlete and PrimalQuest participant. In addition to her many athletic achievements, winning 140 plus snowshoe races, Danelle had an injury in 2006 that almost killed her. The full story is on her website. What a story and what a woman! And what a dog, Taz!
