After today I have more than my requisite 14 hours for the week and I feel awesome. Today I got caught on Walker Ranch in a fairly solid downpour of snow/ rain mix and it was amazing. I crested a ridge and my entire valley was shrouded in thick clouds and mist and it was biting cold. The kind of cold though that isn't uncomfortable but makes you feel alive. I will miss Winter!
I packed up all of our camping gear tonight for a 3 day trip to Fruita and possibly Buena Vista. At the race that I DNF'ed in because I was a moron last Saturday I saw a ton of great camp sites on the trail and I would love to go back and explore some more. Fruita though is first and I can see us staying there for all 3 days because it's kick ass. The trails are spectacular and I've run every mile of the 18 Road system North of Fruita and I can't wait to run them again this weekend.
Trails like Zipity-Do-Daa. Here's a couple pics:
Chutes and Ladders. The Edge which is well over 20 miles long and has a waterfall that you have to climb/ descend via a rope. Here's a pic:
