This week’s Wallpaper Wednesday comes to us from professional photographer David Markman. I met David at this year’s Arrowhead 135 when I dropped by the requisite ‘gear check’ the day before the race. David has been an adventurer for most of his life. He’s canoed across northern Canada twice, once going into the Arctic Circle. He’s raced thousands of gravel miles on his bicycle, including the Great Divide race from Banff to the Mexico-US border. These experiences provide David a unique perspective that’s reflected in his photography. As a photographer, he aims to capture the adventure and spirit of any event. David lives in central Minnesota surrounded by more outdoor gear than furniture.

The arrowhead 135 is a 135-mile ultra-event across northern Minnesota from I-Falls to Tower, MN along rugged snowmobile trails. It was named top 50 “the world’s toughest endurance challenges” with an average finishing rate of below 50%. This year’s race was especially brutal with temps at minus twelve degrees at the start. Jay Petervary and Ben Doom came in first and second in the Men’s category and Sveta Vold was the winner of the Women’s division.
