Longview

First weekend at Hartman Rocks, BEAUTY! It was still snowy/muddy in spots. It's our little Moab, but only 30 minutes away. 60 degrees, sunny with a slight breeze made the 5 1/2 hours and 21-22 miles just amazing. Also enabled me to take the first river ice bath of the season, words can't express how cold the water was and the strange looks from passer-bys were comical, but feel like a million bucks so it was worth it! Here are a few photos of the day:

A view looking down McCabe's about half way up the first hill


One of funderson and I's favorite trails, but it's not ready yet...so I held off.

Natty's favorite past time, it makes no difference how small the snow bank is she'll find a way to roll in it

Bombadil was finally hot enough he took Natty's lead and had a roll to cool off


Mountains in the background with my fat head in the way


Song of the day - Green Day ~ Longview

Friday does seem to be a longview away, but the sun is shining...


Peace...

That would be awesome to just go jump in a river after a long run. We've got a creek, but I'd be afraid the copperheads would eat me alive.

Awesome place to run. It looks so different from anywhere I could find around here.

BTW: Ice baths sound great!

Cool!
Can't beat a weekend run with the dog/dogs.

Greg, it's a love/hate relationship with the ice bath for me. Getting in and sitting for 10 minutes can be hard, but the day after is bliss if you do!

Steve, too right you are!
