What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. But I’ll tell you about Bryce. And how to get through a 50 miler with 6 weeks training. Yes, I suffered on that last climb. Yes, I finished. Sloooowly. But I wasn’t expecting it to be stellar, so how can I be disappointed? A few of us went down to the States to do this Ultra-Adventures race (ultra-adventures.com). Good times, friendly people, great trail.
I’ll let you google images of Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park. My photos couldn’t possibly do it justice. Bryce is about a 5 hour scenic drive from Vegas; Route 9 takes you right through Zion, that magical, awe-inspiring place of massive scale, and a short jog later through the Dixie National Forest, expect to be dazzled by the massive twisted icicles of Bryce’s brilliant red, orange and pink rock. There are flowers too. And rivers. And peregrine falcons. It’s a breath-taking place. Really.
