AZT #34 - Trail Run

Arizona Trail #34 - Trail Run
Kachina Peaks Wilderness
Flagstaff, Arizona
Mileage - 13
Time - 2:00
AEG - 1500ft

Staying the night in Flagstaff gave me an opportunity to hit the trails with the "ultra" guys that live in town. Brian, Ian, and Eric treated me to an easy 13 mile segment of the Arizona Trail, that turned out to be some of the best (and most breathtaking) singletrack I have ever set foot on in the area. Simply beautiful. The nice part about this run was the soft surface of the trail, which felt good after running in racing flats the previous day. Partially overcast skies and temperatures in the 60s, along with frequent changes in the landscape made those 13 miles disappear underneath our feet in what seemed like a matter of minutes. Great catching up with you guys, always a pleasure running together.
