Silverton to Tucson with a trail run on the side

Today, I leave Silverton, Colorado, to head back down to Tucson for some desert running! Very hard to leave Kenny and Silverton, but he'll be home in a few weeks, and I'll be back in Silverton next year to visit.
Bye, bye Silverton! Your snowcapped mountains and brightly hued mountainsides are amazing to look at!

I drove home through Flagstaff, and yes, I stopped off for a little trail run! I did Soldier's Trail, which is located in the Flagstaff Fairgrounds. It is about 5 miles, but I did part of the Flagstaff Urban trail, also, so I ended up running about 6.5 miles, which was great after being in the car for 6 hours. The trail is a combo of single and double track and is located in a beautiful pine forest (Coconino). I didn't see anyone on the trail; just a bunch of huge squirrels! I had one take a picture of me. :)

Hi Renee, nice to "meet" you!

I did my first race on the Soldier's Trail - it's gorgeous!

I really did enjoy that trail in Flagstaff. I'll be going up to Prescott for an 11 mile trail race on Nov. 17th if you care to join me!
