Pipeline overlook and some in the snow.  Really beautiful morning actually with just the right amount of snow to make it stunning yet still great firm trail without a lot of ice.  back shoulder spasm though...need Angel

Grandeur Peak this am with Oreo.  Cold and Windy start up the steep slope...freezing for about half the climb then weather was perfect.  Still a far amount of snow on top and the first mile down the back side.  felt tired at the end...  but beautiful day and great to get out...

Overlook from rattlesnake loop.  Actually a really cool run because it was nice to be in the sun but not blazing hot.

Ditto rattlesnake overlook loop.  I like this one.  Just hike up rattlesnake for the .7 miles then nice run.  Warm out and its only 60... bottom of Grand looking ovenish eh

Pipeline Burch Hollow to Elbow Fork.  Great trail right now with minimal people out up there.  Still some snow covering road from Elbow Fork up the canyon.  Felt alternatingly good and like poo.

Read about the new BST section completed between Mt Oly and Olympus cove.  Really liked it for much of the run, then coming back a bit crowded.  Nice to have a new option nearby.  The access point in the cove not too exciting but rest of the trail up in the air.

Grand Canyon R2R2R...with that middle R being ribbon falls haha (also some miscellaneous miles on road to get to Rim).  Seriously though this was cool and pretty much what I was hoping for and expected.  This is a serious venture for sure.  See Oreo for write up on what we did but suffice it to say this was epic for the brothers to hang in the canyon and I enjoyed every bit of.  Highlights...South Kaibab at 4:30 am, seeing sun come up on way down, Colorado river and the bridges, Phantom ranch flush toilet a nice place for the bizness, ribbon falls is cool and I love the moss rock landing pad, the beards, the heat, the ice and lemonade at Phantom Ranch... i could have hung out there for a few hours, Pizza after...Hairdog coming out alive after doing who knows how many miles alone...crap man, that climb out is a beast ... good stuff...proud to hang with such studs... thanks bros!
