Klondike Bluff Trail Run, Moab, UT

Jeff and I got up this morning and decided to get in a long run on a mountain bike trail outside Moab, UT.  I got on the internet and found the Klondike Bluff Trail, an out and back 8+ mile trail that ends at a viewpoint in Arches National Park.

Darn it, I loved it, I loved trail running.  Just another thing I'm going to have to get into.....
It was a brisk cool morning but once we got running, we warmed up quickly.  The trail was a mix of dirt paths  and giant sandstone boulders.
The trail was well marked so we never got lost or were unsure of where we were going.  The trail ended and we got a great view into Arches National Park.
There were the typical rock stacks that you add a rock to when you pass by.  We each added a rock.
We got in 8+ miles and it was awesome being out in the middle of the desert with nobody else around.  It was very relaxing and mind clearing.  Can't wait to do more trail running!!!!  Now off to Arches National Park and onto Colorado......
