Down the mountain...

Monday's workout:
6.2 miles - at NIGHT.
I can't remember the last time I ran at night.
It was great, though.
7:59 pace.
I'll TAKE IT! 

Well, we are back from a lovely weekend away!
Note:  All pictures taken with my cell phone camera.
Somebody forgot to charge the camera battery.
Oh wait- that was me.

The mountain running plan was completely derailed.
Turns out the place we stayed was up a mile + long gravel hill...
at a lofty 9000  foot elevation.
 I was not interested in breaking myself trying to run down a steep gravel hill. 

We did a lot of swimming and watching movies instead.
It was great.
We did manage to do some exploring of the beautiful scenery...
See?  Nature.

Okay, the husband says that this isn't nature.
Apparently random old cranes don't occur naturally in the wilderness.
Live and learn.

Me and some kids that kept following us around... 
 Poor oldest child boy- he got sick and lost all desire to
deal with his pain in the butt mother.
Thus, no pictures of that boy enjoying nature. 

I guess the husband got a little sick of me, too...
behold him trying to escape down the road less traveled:
Eventually he returned. 

It was a great trip and we had so much fun.
I am so happy to sleep in my own bed tonight.

Great views!! Kudos to you for running at night!! Once the sun goes down I get all fraidy cat and can't do it! Plus I have night blindness (silly tanning beds!) so I'm pretty sure I would hurt myself and run into something!

So PRETTY! It looks like it was a lovely weekend! And I'm so glad you didn't run down a gravelly mountain! We were walking down a gravelly hill on Monday and like three of us fell on our butts. Good times.
