It was a warm day and everyone with their dog was at Buffalo Park. But it was a beautiful day and I was glad to see so many people enjoying the great outdoors

The weather was perfect for this new run. The coarse felt like a perfect combination of steep grades and easy going terrain. Nothing about this trail was boring. I especially liked that fact that the toughest part of the trail is over within the first two miles.

Less than an inch of snow fell last night, making this trail nice and white for a good morning run.

Saw three beautiful mule deer bucks on the trail. The clouds were low lying which created a foggy and irrie scene. The clouds would break up periodically to showcase the illuminated peaks and mount elden. This was a great morning run!

Stopped at several locations towards the end of the trail to read the interpretive signs and view the red-winged blackbirds that were singing up a storm. Saw several malords and coots at the pond.

First time on this trail system. I happened to be staying in the area and decided to check it out in the morning before heading back to Flagstaff. I was rather amazed by the many user trails sprouting off from the main trail. I think I started on the Charleston trail and then just took whatever trail perked my interest from there. I ended up doing all of the Pearl Charles Trail with some other minor connectors included. This was a fun trail to run and being from up north, it was rather easy on the lungs. Beautiful area. I'll definately check out more of the trails when I return next time.

Pipe's Canyon is located between Rim Rock and Pioneertown, CA. There was a huge fire that devestated the area about a year ago. Pipes Canyon has a beautiful creek running through it year-round. The area was closed off for rehabilitation and opening back up this spring...so I thought it was close enough. Vegetation in the stream bed was beginning to spout back to life. The sound of the desert creek with a couple of water falls was refreshing as you see nothing but chared landscape. But still, this is a beautiful hiking area that I'll return to again when I visit.

What's better than 6 miles before sunrise?

Nice little run at 6am this morning. The moon and stars were bright and the sun began to rise as I started back for home.

Great morning run starting at 5:30am. The clear moonlit sky allowed for easy visibility of the trail. I came upon a group of three runners, surprising for this early in the morning. Guess I'm not the only one...

Ran this trail at 6am this morning. I think the trail must be 1.25 miles long. The up/down vertical variation of the trail made for nice workout. I came upon a skunk in the middle of the trail and the darn thing wouldn't go to the left or right, it ran right down the middle of the trail away from me. I had to slow down until it finally decided to abort the trail.

This trail reminds me of an alley way made into a trail. This smooth, 2-mile trail runs along the Rio de Flag and the back fence lines of many properties. The trail also crosses many streets which breaks this trail up into many segments, good for alternating between easy and tempo running. But the greatest thing of all about this trail is the diversity you encounter, both urban diversity and natural diversity. You can't help but take note of the different designs of structures and landscaping, as well as upkeep, of back yards. The trail wraps around a pond area that attracks a variety of ducks. There is also an old cabin built in the 1930's by the Boy Scouts. The sections running along the Rio de Flag support a variety of riparian vegetation. The city has recently extended this trail on the north end, something which I'll have to explore at another time. But all in all, this trail is a fun, easy trail that cuts right through urban development, all the while maintaining a excellent view of peaks as you head north. The fact that the trail is broken up by street crossings make this an excellent trail to run at variable intensities.

1 inch of snow fell last night causing this trail to be slightly muddy with packed snow in the shaddy areas. Regardless, this was nice gentle run along the Rio de Flag with impressive canyon walls and wetland at the end of the trail.

Ran at 5:40am. The was just enough light to keep on the trail. The low clouds were lit up by the city lights, which looked pretty cool.

Trail was a little muddy due to the 1/2 inch of snow fall last night. But it was a beautiful sunny day. Saw two mule deer along the trail. This will be a good challenge trail to run/jog.

Beautiful run just before sunrise. The 1/2 inch of snow fall last night created a virgin looking course. There's something gratifying about making the first tracks for the day.
