Rolling hills to Tomales Point, Point Reyes National Seashore. A morning of fog, flowers and wildlife. Gorgeous.
"Trying" to take it easy, nursing an ankle injury in preparation for Spain next week. That means I walk up the hills, which I view as a lesson in patience and character building. Drakes Estero to the headlands. Another epic day in this wilderness.
Another beautiful day along the Pacific, this time on the coastal trail heading north from Bolinas, CA. Working with an Achilles injury, getting better but must be VERY careful for a while.
Another spectacular Spring run along the Coast Trail past Sculptured Beach. Flowers everywhere. Lush. Pure joy.
Comprehensively Spring -- birds, flowers, sweet aromas and perfect temperatures. An enjoyable run along the Bear Valley and Coastal trails to Kelham beach waterfall.
One of my favorite hike-runs. Up to Olancha Pass. Views into Nevada were amazing. Prominence above Owens Valley is dramatic. Rock formations, sheer drops off the trail, snow at higher elevations.
Lots of bushwacking to an un-named precipice and waterfall (Tuttle Creek headwaters) overlooking Owens Valley. Many other trails still closed for the season.
A short bit up the Tuttle Creek trail +. Several miles from camp to the trailhead and back not counted. Gorgeous scenery.
Ten miles of running and four miles of rock scrambling up Jack's Canyon to the Plateau over the Red Rock Country of Sedona. Wanted to go much farther but I was running out of water. Made the right decision and drank the last bit at mile 13.
Endless volcanic scree but a great view out to the Painted Desert. A very short trail but I did if for the peace and beauty, not the mileage. Marking 3 years today since open heart surgery.
One thousand miles of trails through 50 designated Wilderness Areas of the U.S.
