Drove to Big water parking lot at the end of Millcreek canyon and went on Dog Lake to Desolation Lake loop ending coming down Great Western Trail from Desolation.  This is a beautiful loop with about 2800 feet of climbing.   I love the views around Desolation.  I am out of shape for these longer miles.  Kind of a kick in the butt to try and get back to some regular running.  I am in the realm of miles that I am always in some pain.  Difficult to get in any rhythm and have feel good miles.

Pipeline up rattlesnake towards churchill and then to overlook.  Pristine trails, tired body...a few to many cookies last night to feel good I believe.  Colors are starting to change.

HFF dog/desolation loop starting at lower Big Water parking.  This was a sweet one with perfect temps and trail and no real crowd yet when we started. Went up with Oreo and the Hairdog.  Black Angus still locked into moving and couldnt join us unfortunately.  Beautiful loop.   I had it at 2860 feet elevation peaking out at 9677'.
