Antelope Island

Matt and I went out to Antelope Island to try and do the 25k course. We knew of the impending storm coming in and were a bit worried, but it appears the craziness isn't coming in until tonight now. We only had to deal with wind and cold. I like the cold, but hate the wind.

The first several miles run south heading straight into the wind. We passed several buffalo along the way, which was cool. The views are awesome. The weird thing though is that everything looks closer than it really is. I knew within a mile that we wouldn't have time to do the whole course so I thought we could go out and bag Elephant Head knoll, but it turned out to be quite a bit further than it looked. Even still, we got out there pretty far and turned around at the 6 mile mark. We then reversed the course and followed the finishing way back, which added the half mile. It was a really cool run and I can't wait to go back out there and run the whole thing. Oh, and there was zero snow on the ground.
