Great Outdoor Provision Company's Fall Photo Shoot

Torrential downpour: a photographer's day-of nightmare. Typically, there's not much you can do except wait it out. But this was not your typical crowd. This was Raleigh's #1 gear shop, Great Outdoor Provision Company -- a handful of the industry's best outdoor enthusiasts who always rock a smile, rain or shine.

Three hours and 4.5 inches of rain later, we were still having a blast stomping around in muddy Chacos and breaking in some brand new gear from Patagonia's Fall clothing line at William B. Umstead State Park.  

Big thanks to Chuck Millsaps and the GOPC crew/models for putting up with thousands of photos in the rain! For more photos and info, check out Great Outdoor's blog
