My hike plans were washed out by heavy rains today. By 3pm conditions were looking a little better, even though still 90% cloud cover. Decided on a quick trip to Siphon Draw. Arrived at trailhead at 4:40pm. Only one other car in the parking lot and I ran into the guy on his way back down. I made it to the bowl in good time..45 minutes. Water was running. Could hear it all around me. Very cool to have this place all to myself. I roamed around the bowl, took a bunch of pictures and started my way down at 6:20pm. About a mile from the trailhead, I contemplated taking out my headlamp, but light was still fair. Felt a sprinkling rain begin to hit my back as I ran down the hill towards a lightning storm that was going on beyond the mountains in the distant northwest. The low light, the rain in my back, the lightning show...what a surreal feeling. Arrived at my vehicle at 6:50pm. Rain started to come down heavy as I left the park.

This is my gym. I have to travel down a bumpy road to get there. There are no treadmillls, no machines, and no personal trainers. I walk..I run..I breathe the fresh air. I can go any time I want, as much as I want and there is no membership fee.
