Heaven In The Rain

There is this place in the middle of the southern Utah desert called Warner Valley. I feel like it's my own little piece of heaven. I've probably run more miles here than anywhere in the world. It feels like I know every square inch of the dirt out here. It's where I fell in love with trail running. I've never seen another runner out here so I'm claiming the land as my own.

A little while back I got in another great long run there. The scenery was even more amazing because I got caught in the middle of a beautiful rain storm.

It was insanely windy and I was getting pounded with rain. But that only lasted a few miles and then everything mellowed out. 

It was so cool to watch as the storm moved off into the horizon. It's moments like this that keep me coming back to my little slice of heaven in Warner Valley.

  1. Your scenery is not even fair. Suburbia can't even hope to hold a candle to it.
