on not being home

71 degrees and sunny.

red rock, sweeping vistas, buttes and plateaus and gently swooping inclines. stunning views, sagebrush and wheatgrass and prickly pear cactus.

57 miles yesterday, ending with a swoop down snow canyon, 52 miles today that included a swish around sand hollow reservoir: a utah century (we can't seem to stop at just 100 miles), split in half, which is, I believe, probably the best way one can do a century.

it's a treat to be in st. george, having escaped from the dreary, cloudy, rainy, depressing, wet, gray,green greasy limpopo river---ooops, I mean salt lake valley.
