Hells Gate State Park: A Little Piece of Heaven

Posted Feb 20 2012 9:00am
"But my leg doesn't hurt that bad. I can still run."
This is what winter near the bottom of a
Pacific NW canyon looks like.
My buddy, Aaron, joining me on his bike.
After a green light from the vet (and some pills),
Sadie's back where she's most comfortable.

Overlooking the Snake River.


Looking toward the norther tip of Hells Canyon
(the deepest canyon in the USA.)

Cool formations on the canyon walls.
Rainy-day single-track above the Snake.

Man, I get a bit teary-eyed when I see sweet single-track and blue skies like this.

Running happy.

Snaking up and over and around the canyon-side.

Still feeling good nearly six miles in.

This running thing is pretty good to me. I hope I'm giving back as much as I'm taking.

Half marathon in two weeks. Maybe a little rest? Nah, I'll keep running. :)
