It has been an emotional week. The otherwise stellar cross country season ended a bit differently than we had planned last weekend and Wednesday I attended the funeral of a friend that died way too young. I decided I needed a little adventure to "reboot" so this morning i left my house with my dogs and completed a 27 mile loop linking the old family homestead, and the highest point in the Stump Creek area, Before descending down Horse Creek and landing back home. It was just what the doctor ordered. Here are a few photos. In all we were out just over five hours with nearly 6k climb and descent.
Sweet singletrack On a beautiful fall day.
S'mores and Summitt keeping hydrated.
Playing around with my iphone.
High point 9200 ft. The Salt River Range in the distance.
After crossing Horse Creek a dozen times my feet were a little cold.
El Vaquero Loco 2014 - Thanks for making this year's race such a success.
11th annual. Saturday, August 8th, 2015. Out and back course on nearly 100% singletrack. Beautiful vistas. Very tough and technical. It has been our experience that you run the 25k if you are not used to running technical trails at altitude.
