Our youngest daughter runs Cross Country and recently qualified for State.
The Rim Rock course in Lawrence Kansas is absolutely gorgeous, especially in Autumn. On the other hand the course is the most challenging Cross Country course in the country and can be brutal for the runners. One hill is named Suicide Hill, and another is so steep and sometimes muddy they put ropes for the runners to help pull themselves up.
Here are some of the things that make this so beautiful. The only editing I did was cropping and a bit of fill light.
If you look closely you can see tombstones in the cemetery.

After a long illness at the start of the season our daughter worked hard to get in shape. She placed 29th at state.
Yep, we are very proud parents.
