One of the more fun runs all year.  Headed up Pipeline and put the tunes on some old time Iron Maiden because I wanted to rock out a bit...started at Burch Hollow and went to the Overlook and back.  The canyon is seriously stunning right now with the fall color changes.  Light drizzle most of the run. A lot of runners out today, about 80% women...hot women at that, and I say that with utter respect regardless of how anyone actually looks, trail running is sexy.  Lots of dogs too...Oreo would have been scared...I also passed they U of Utah cross country ski team doing some training...they all look like tall Nordic studs...they cross country roller bladed up the canyon road and ran pipeline down, nice,...got to the car just after the rains started coming down in earnest.  fun stuff, avg 8:52

Here damn it! "The expectation of peace and safety on public land outweighs dog owners' rights. Youdon't have to have a dog, but you do have the right to free travel. The bigger responsibility falls on the dog owner".

Wish I could'a been there...

what can I say, "I am glad I am home" happy trails my mechanically challenged friend. Nick needs help with the whole dog thing, shock therapy might work...

The Pipeline is one of my favorites. The trail is amazing and the people watching is always fun too, although last year we had a pooper just off the trail that wasn't so hot or fun.

Hey Mozzer, I've got a Golden Retiever that would work to shock treat Oreo, he's scarey as hell. Five minutes in a room with him, he'd be cured. Nice run G, Good trail, Iron Maiden and hot trail running women, perfect. Glad you got your hooves out.
