Training Daze

A few more big days in the hills before shutting it down and the taper.  Lots of focus on the MTC40 and IMTUF100 courses.

Jughandle Mountain scramble.  Lots of laps on this thing lately.  A nice, steep summit climb with lots of scrambling.

Halstead Fire and its massive pyro-cumulous cloud over the Sawtooths to the east.
The Boulder Mountain "Open Range" section from the MTC 40.
Louie Lake self portrait.
Pollock Mountain from the approach near Cold Springs.  A 4+ mile, 3500' foot run to the Lookout on top (seen just left of the basalt cone).  A magnificent peak just north of McCall, near New Meadows that for some reason I had never done prior to this summer.    It is now a training staple.
Pollock Mountain from the Rapid River Ridge Trail north of the peak.  Big views to the west of the Seven Devils and Rapid River drainage.
Brandi runs through endless Lupine flowers- Louie Lake Loop (MTC 20 and 40).
Brandi and Katie almost figuring out how to work the new camera's countdown timer- Jughandle Summit.
