A few days ago I had to pick up my car from a repair shop on the east side of Flagstaff. I had the opportunity to get a ride over from downtown Flagstaff, where I live, but opted to make a run out of it instead. I realized that because the dry lake hills and Mt. Elden are right in the way of my path to the repair shop, I might as well get a long run in. In the end, my path ended up being all trails (no roads), about 18-19 miles and AWESOME! I ran early in the morning and the weather was great. I made great time, getting over to R and R Auto in 2 hrs and 48 minutes and felt really good at the end of the run. I should take my car to R and R more often as an excuse to run there. I pieced together pretty much all my favorite trails in the dry lake hills and on Mt. Elden. Where else can you do a run like this just to get across town!?! Flagstaff is sweeet!!!
Below, in red, is the path I took to R and R auto.
