Russ and I just knocked out 4 days and another 700 miles of prerunning. These stages were in the Kanab and Jacob Lake region, mostly North of the Grand Canyon North Rim.

We had a bit of rain and hale on the first day, but it was great after that. This was a pretty tough prerun, with several really gnarly up hills and down hills, a full day of sand, some challenging navigation, and lots of locked gates and No Trespassing signs. We found our way through or around all that, resulting in a couple more great and varied stages.

A great wash, with a surprise half way through. We took a quick break in the shade:

As if the nav wasn't challenging enough, we tested our balancing skills:
