Former resident of Batopilas Canyon, German artist Lutz Köllges created these unique images of the 2010 Ultra Caballo Blanco.
"I now find myself unusually shy and humble, very vulnerable. And, I move. I love running some long trail that I don't know. It keeps me in the present. And, I usually get to the top of the mountain, in this town of destination, fresh and surprised, that I'm there already. Because I'm not wondering where I am, or when the goal will be attained. Each breath, in the present. I need to carry this more into every day of living." Micah True- Batopilas Canyon
