A couple of alternate routes to travel or trailrun from Aspen or Marble to Crested Butte.
If there’s one thing I have figured out after nine finishes at the Hardrock 100, it’s that you should never go into it thinking you’ve actually got it figured out. Train all you want, manage as many details as you think you can, but be ready for some curveballs on race day, and don’t be […]
It’s become a bit of a tradition for us to escape the July 4th crowds in town and go explore the Sangres. The Sangre de Cristo Mountain range runs north to south from near Sailda, Colorado, down into New Mexico. A lot of 14er climbers in Colorado know the Sangres for peaks like the Crestones, […]
The San Juan Solstice 50 miler took place last weekend in the quiet mountain town of Lake City. We’ve always loved this hilly course in the northeast San Juan Mountains. One or both of us have run this race for most of the past ten years. It’s become an annual summer kickoff event for us. […]
When a small storm moved into the Sierras mid-week, bringing wintry conditions to the mountains, we took the opportunity to head back to Death Valley National Park knowing that it would be unseasonably cool.
We like to say we’re just playing the hand we’ve been dealt. That is, when current conditions don’t allow for certain activities, just go with what’s working. In this case, we had such a warm, dry November that hardly any snow fell, and the ski areas were pretty behind when the usual Opening Day arrived.
We love Bryce Canyon National Park. We just returned from four days of trail running and backpacking there and we were blown away by the beauty. Utah has no shortage of incredible desert scenery, the state has five National Parks to showcase it all. But through the years we had always set our sights on […]
In 2016 I finished Nolan’s 14 in 55:37 following the route north from Mt Shavano to Mt Massive, a near 100 mile course that climbs 14 14ers along the way.
Looking for a moderate distance trail run that gets you up into the high alpine? Do you prefer loops to out-and-backs, so that you don’t have to travel along the same trail in both directions?
We ran a cool linkup of trails in the Buffalo Peaks Wilderness outside of Buena Vista last weekend. The 25 mile loop circumnavigated the pair of 13,000 foot peaks known as the Buffalo Peaks, and it was a perfect semi-long day on the trail.
