Olena Buryak dropping the erg at the 2017 CRASH-Bs. Like she did today during her World Record 6:22.8 2K. Respect.

Bear Lake might be one of the most touristy destination at Rocky Mountain National Park.. For good reason.

MRRA dudes bending some oars at Sweeps and Sculls

The last sunset in CO was pretty spectacular.

Congrats to Emily on a well earned bronze at U23 worlds!

Meanwhile, in Colorado, Dream Lake at Rocky Mountain National Park turned out to be pretty dreamy.

Rob launches into the moonset/reflected sunrise.

I emerged into a field of wild flowers, lit up by the Colorado sun. And in the distance, like a glorious mirage... was a Westin. As much as I enjoyed the stay, they could have made it a little bit shorter.

Gentle Giants vs buoy. Remarkable recovery, all things considered, and Ed and John were going to beat them on handicap anyhow. :)

Colorado mornings are ok.

Blue Geese in Narragensset.

Last light of the day sliding through the Rockies.

Carrie and Anne-Marie didn't want the boys to have all the pair fun.

Sunsets aren't so bad here, either.

An RBC sculler rows by

Jetlag could, occasionally be a good thing.

Close combat in the junior double at the Sweeps and Sculls

Getting on Jet plane.. After going back to the gate first.. Nothing like a 2am MST time arrival to get that productivity going.

Sweep ladiezzz carving up sunshine.

More tracks at dawn.

Masters pairs invading Narragansett Sweeps and Sculls

Great place for a regatta. Bonus appearance from an orange Van Dusen.

Savannah and Abigail threw down pretty hard in the women's single at Cromwell on Sunday.

Sun sneaking out over the horizon for a brief peep last Saturday, before fading behind the clouds again.

Rolling by some UBC mixed doubles in the basin

Fun times this morning the U23 lightweight squad (and friends)

Also featuring our U23 Single, Emily

Molly is the U23 Lwt Single, you may recall her from her previous adventures in the LW4x and the Pierce family double.

U23 Lwt4x, with Janice, Emma, Makayla, and Anna with perfect bladework.

Kate and Sarah in the double (not 100% positive on lineup).

Abby playing the role of player-coach perfectly, sparring with Molly.

Molly wasn't the only Pierce in the basin.. Dad Jim stroked the CBC quad that sparred with the light 4x, also featuring fellow MIT alum Russ, and not one, but two Mansons (well, one is a Mazzio-Manson), Jay and Daisy.

Malcom presiding over the festivities.

Bonus shot of both U23 singles.

Turns out the US U23 LW2X is also eligible for junior racing. They also won the open double. Prestigious Cromwell gold out of the way, they are setting their eyes on international competition.

Long exposure of a short race.

Close encounters of the pair kind.

Cheers to Jeff's Birthday!

Fireworks were either for Jeff or New Kids on the Block.

A bunch of lightweights with the fattest ergo in the boathouse in the middle. Nice work, HPG!

U23s beating up on the regulars today.

Abigail Parker (yes, Harry's daughter) taking the Cuttler Cup Women's Open Single

And CRI's Adam Randall taking the Cromwell Cup.

Quite possibly the most wired boat on the Charles.

Not seen from my single, fortunately.
