Beautiful Miles This Week or Why I Hate The Dark

I have run in some beautiful places over the last few days. So far, my 50 miles this week have taken me:

Past the wheat fields of Hurricane, Utah that glow like gold during the summer:

Past the looming mountain of Molly's Nipple:

Across some beautiful trails in the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve:

And many trips on the hill I have (un)affectionately named Widowmaker:

And guess how much of this beautiful scenery I have been able to view? Nearly none. Out of the 50 miles so far this week.....45 of them have been in the dark! No bueno. It's a good thing I've traveled these miles many times in the past so I can envision all this beauty - when all I see is the light of a head lamp.
Here's to more miles in the light!


  1. So many metephores possible here. Life is so much more beautiful with light! Beautiful pictures!

  2. I actually like running in the dark but it's never dark enough that I can't see. It's the difference between running in the city where there's street lights and running in wilderness. I think if my scenery was as beautiful as that I'd prefer to run during daylight hours too.

  3. Your pictures are AHmazing!!! I think I've said this like a bajillion times, but it's true!

  4. Yea, I'm with Jessica, your pictures are amazing!

  5. Incredible shots as usual. Nice work on the 50 miles. Keep it up!

  6. This page really has all the information and facts I wanted concerning this subject
    and didn't know who to ask.
