Sights and Scenes

We put together a little photo documentary of what trail running exploits we have been up to for the past couple weeks.  We, as in Kathleen has been running enough lately that it has been a lot of US running together - I dig that!  It's Sunday night and I'm a bit tired, so words will be few and photos plenty :)

Garden of the Gods
Postcard day at the Garden... as always!
Looking down on the west side of the big rock formations -
Lots of runners will be on that road next week for the Garden 10 Miler
Peregrine Falcon on Dakota Trail - we rounded a corner and there he was right next to the trail - look at the size of that talon!  He was magnificent!
