Bisbee 1000 Stair Climb


The big day is here, the one people have been practicing months for: Bisbee 1000 Stair Climb. In today’s post I’m celebrating those who ran through the sun’s orbs, felt but not seen.

Some ran in perfect harmony

While others strode with purposeful intent.

All were given a rousing cheer by those of us who do not climb stairs in the heat of the sun.

We finally realized that what the runners needed more than cheers was water.

Relief at last.

For some it meant a refreshing interlude.

Pure joy for a boy.

A time to dance and rejuvenate.

Or just feel blessed.

And have a bit of fun after a hard climb of over 350 stairs.

Happiness swirls forth.

Ready for the next half of the climb.

It’s a good day in the neighborhood.

Born in the West, I studied photography and painting at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before being drawn back home to the open skies of western living. My camera is always close at hand to capture changing light and to record what catches my eye. However, it is my recent discovery of being able to see orbs through the medium of digital photography that has sparked my passion for photographing the night. All photographs in this blog are copyrighted by me. Occasional photos by guests are copyrighted by the photographer. Please contact if you would like to order prints.

  1. Absolutely great photos. I had to look at them multiple times. This is the kind of photography you can really have fun with and enjoy. Is this race run often? Anually? Looks like a blast. Love it, bill


  2. Glad you enjoyed the photos, Bill. Yes, you can run or walk this race on the third weekend of October every year. Families and friends have reunions in Bisbee coming from all over the country to walk a mile high course that winds through town. We’ll put the sprinkler out earlier next year.
