Story Behind The Image - Katie Bono

4 hours and 58 minutes.

That is how long it took Katie Bono to run from the Paradise parking lot to the summit of Mt Rainier and back down. That is fast. Her speed record still stands (as far as I know). Katie set this time in the summer of 2012. To be clear these images are not during Katie’s speed record.

Katie also holds the female speed record on Denali, to round things out.

At the time Katie & I both worked as mountain guides on Rainier and Denali in Alaska.

We spent a couple of days producing images of Katie for a book that was featuring Katie called “The Better Bombshell”
