Oreo and I got up and did the Wasatch Crest trail this morning which I have wanted to do for some time, but just never had a good chance too. Was a beautiful place that lived up to all expectations. I was weak sauce on the running, with my overall fitness less than last year at this point and my body wanting more oxygen than the 10,000 foot level was providing but Oreo was strong and willed us on.
The Crest is gorgeous and green and full of wild flowers with some amazing views. Loved looking down on Desolation Lake. We took our time seeing the views overall. Ran to Big Water then down the Millcreek canyon road for 3 miles until Pipeline starts at Elbow Fork. Then Pipeline to Rattlesnake Gulch. I was dying and went down Church Fork to end up about a mile less than Oreo. Had to do some walking even on the flats, just to try and get wind and heat under control, but fun, beautiful day...definitely one I would like to do again some day.
