New Runners

Laura picked me up some new trail running shoes this week. The Vasque Aether Tech 7574. I tried them out last night for a 4 mile trail run and they feel pretty good. The BOA lacing system is pretty slick and similar to the Specialized cycling shoe lace system.

White Rim-Mineral Bottom Road Closed

Amazing photos of Mineral Bottom Road on the White Rim route washed away by apparently heavy rains. I poached these photos from the internet. No WRIAD anytime soon.
