" We have been partners for a long time. Scotty has a great appetite for money, and I like to feed it.
He has always repaid me - in laughs." A. Johnson
Scotty's Castle is owned, maintained and protected by the National Park Service. A must see should you find yourself in these parts, but should you run into the ghost of Scotty, hang on to your wallet, to this day he is still looking for investers in his non-existant gold mine.

We have a favorite place close to our house for biking, however till now we were limited as to how far we could go because of "The Wall" ( a steep mile long hill). Last year we had convinced ourselves that our 71 & 72 years and our 7 speed bikes were a limiting factor.
However now that we are perfected in our fitness, I for one have been whitling away at the hill for weeks, just a bit at a time. Today was the day for the full montey. I reached the top in jubilation, only to look back and see Heather coming close on my tail.

They say it's in their genes, but Heather and I say not in the genes that we wear. Our third daughter has run several 50 mile races and she just completed her second run of "THE BEAR" It is a 100 mile endurance run from Logan Utah to Fish Haven Idaho starting Sept. 28th 2012.. No the run is not up the canyon on the highway. This is a wilderness race over the mountains and through the woods. And no this is not a relay. They run the race completely on their own start to finish.......no tag team woosy stuff. Lowest elevation is 4,860 ft. Highest elevation is 9,060 ft. above sea level. And get this. Going over the ridges gives them a total of 21,980 feet of climbing. And no....they don't stop to sleep. Start is 6:00 am and through the day and through the night and through the next day with a 36 hour cut off.
The above photo was taken as the trail passed through a recreational lake area over a man made groomed dam. Trails in the wilderness are not this way. They are raw and hazardous strewn with logs, rocks and the occasional bear, wolf or mangy moose.
