Wasatch Crest - 7/8/10

1:52:16 - I ran the Wasatch Crest Trail this morning with Scott W and his friend Matt and my friend Jason. It was the first trail run for Matt and the first time Jason had been on the Crest. Needless to say, I think they enjoyed themselves. We took it really easy today and even summited Desolation Peak as part of the run. Saw a large buck, then four doe, then a mama moose with her two babies (right in the middle of the trail - I came upon them really quickly and was pretty close). Then after we were done I wanted a few more miles so I headed across the street from the Mill D trailhead to some trails I saw. Ran into a lady who was over there running, so I was optimistic I could get in a few more miles. Turns out everywhere I went I ran into a tent, a toilet, or a dumpster. I got in just over one more mile. I did get to show the lady two juvenile moose though that were playing in the river. That was cool.

The morning welcomed us with a beautiful sunrise.
