Obviously, this doesn't count as the beautiful terrain part, lol
Approaching the only part that scared me (claustrophobic)
Ok, not quite as narrow as it seemed. Except for this one part to the left that's hidden. Definitely a suck in your tummy squeeze through bit.

One of my favorite photos of the day
Gratuitous trail shot
We were waaaaaay over there!
Pause and enjoy the beauty
Loving my Brooks Cascadia 7 trail shoes!
We crossed through this cold creek twice. The 2nd time was pure heaven because it cooled us down and numbed some lower leg extremities
The trail runner's version of an ice bath
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Look how clear that water is, absolutely fantastic
This guy was enjoying all the runner loving ;-)
We all enjoyed hot-dogs and hamburgers grilled on this outdoor pit afterwards
All in all the HighRock Hop is a must do in my opinion.........it is a smaller race but since it's on private land and they so generously opened their home to us and fed us so much afterwards I kind of hope it stays that way. The trail was extremely well laid out, every last little stob and hole was marked with red ribbon, they even had extra water stops because of the unseasonable heat we've been having. Truly feel lucky to have gotten to participate in this run. Since it was a race with results posted and all, guess I should mention our times, eh? The 3 of us girls finished in 2:37 but like I said before we weren't running this for time, just the fun and joy of getting to run on new (to us) trails. oh, and the t-shirt of course ;-)
