Omak Stampede / by Rhys Logan

Finally got around to editing some photos from the Omak Stampede in August.  Every year the Suicide Race is a fascinating and dangerous spectacle that I will continue to shoot and hopefully cover more closely in the near future.  Controversial and steeped in Native American tradition, it draws thousands of people every year to the Omak River on warm summer nights for a breakneck race down a mountainside into the cold black water, finishing in the arena.
