Sun Valley Runs: A Soppy, Notable Day on the Trails

I took my camera along on today's gray, soppy 29 mile run on some classic Sun Valley, ID trails: starting in Adams Gulch, heading over to Lake Creek, then up and around Oregon Gulch. The quality of the singletrack and the vertical is astounding for a trail head that's just a few minutes outside of town. Apart from the wet and rainy conditions, which were notable themselves, I crossed paths with ultra legend, Rob Landis, a thankfully docile cow moose and yearling, and tons and tons of wildflowers. That this was my last major run ahead of the Bighorn 100 made it all feel that much more poignant. (Slideshow below; Album link).
