Most of these photos were taken during my bike/run/hike adventure on Indian Creek Trail in the Manti La Sal National Forest near Monticello, Utah a week and a half ago. We decided to camp along Indian Creek and try biking the trail in the morning. The trail is designed for dirt bikes / motorcycles, so we were hoping it might work for mountain bikes as well. Unfortunately, the trail turned out to have a lot of deep sand and it was very slow and frustrating on the bike. So… I ditched my bike and decided to hike while Jay turned around to find a better mountain bike trail. Soon, I was inspired to run. It was 6 miles one way to Newspaper Rock (a well known petroglyph site). I really wanted to be able to make it the whole way so I started running all of the downhill and flat sections. I made it there in great time but was definitely hurting some on the way back. Not to mention I was more than an hour later than I had expected to meet up with Jay. It was just such a beautiful trail that I wanted to complete the whole thing. Hope you enjoy the photos.
