Southern Scorcher-fest, mind melting, leg beating, sweet-trail kinda run. Headed down with Gdoc and HairDog, to get some needed R&R. Primary reason for trip was to run the Hurricane Rim, Jem and Goulds Rim trail loop. An added bonus was going down on Friday and hitting Yankee Doodle Slot canyon! Ya 100 ft drop right off the bat gets things rolling along nicely.
Run was tough, HOT, and long, but Awesome. Trail make-up actually reminded me a lot of the BST. We ran into a bunch of MTN bikers.. One old HAG yelled at us because we were running and not biking and how dangerous that was... According to offical sources:
- Bikers yield to hikers (Trail Runners) and horses
- Hikers yield to Horses
So, booYA grumpy mtn biker Lady... Actually she was the only shank out of the couple dozen bikers we encountered...
Got some great GoPro of the slot and run.. If I find time - I'll try and doing something with the footage!
My garmin had the Vert just over 3200.
