    Considered checking out the Session’s yesterday, but once at the trailhead I thought better of it and headed for the Wasatch Coast to trail run. Sort of weird peak bagging wearing shorts during January, but seems that is how its been the past several years..

    Check out all those bare spots on the mountains, such a shame – need some storms! Oh and the air is kind of shitty too…

    Awesome photos, sad images. Let me know next time your doing something like that. Shoes sound better than ski boots.

    Pretty sure my chest would explode if I tried to run at the elevation you have down there. The weather has been great for running. This trail should be under several feet of snow…

    Right on Chris, hope all is well man…

    Thanks Dan… Figured you’d be down south…

    Damn! powslash that isn’t good. Snow situation, more importantly water situation is bleak… That is a sweet stretch of trail though.
    If your lungs did survive the elevation, our air would get ya.

    Seeking vert and refuge from central Wasatch urbanism took me west to recce the lonely mid-elevation ranges of Sanpete and Juab counties. The reasonable drive was rewarded with a sustained six mile ridge of unusual conglomerate boulder formations dotting ghostly remnants of a burned juniper forest. All the while Mt Nebo commanded the horizon of my back trail, as the Sevier River lazily meandered in the foreground.

    Equal parts running, scrambling and power hiking, the view from the upper most prominence took in Nebo, Timp, Lone Peak, Oquirrhs, Sansbury’s, Deep Creeks, and though faint, included both Notch and Wheeler Peaks scarcely visible through the mid-day desert haze.

    The unbroken ridge to the upper right prominence was the objective
