Bubble in the desert

A blog I started whilst on a GE "Bubble" assignment in Nevada. I'm back in Cambridge (UK) now but still miss the desert and my friends out there.

Ran / Hiked Snow Valley Peak (17 miles)

I ran to Snow Valley Peak with Sienna and Scott. There was some disagreement about exactly where Snow Valley Peak was. I was somewhat dismayed at first since after 6 miles we were running right past it. Then it was just amusing that the massive hill behind us, with the radio masts standing up from the top, was SNOW VALLEY PEAK. However, for the next 3 miles nobody seemed to concerned with thoughts of turning around. Eventually we met the main trail and bumped in to Dave Adams out for a mountain bike ride on the flume trail (looking very fresh after the hard part of the ride).

We came back via Marlette Lake and the new single track path. This started a little steep but eventually leveled out very nicely. This was the most pleasant running terrain we'd had and was good for 3 or 4 miles.

Back at the cars for some stretching we were a bit surprised that out pedometers had clocked up 29,000 steps or so - that will help our respective teams with the walking competition at work!
