Drove home from Grand Junction today. Had a cheeseburger at Ray's Tavern in Green River along the way. Best burgers in Utah and it's probably worth a drive to Green River just for that. Also went to the John Wesley Powell Museum which is really nice. Topped it all off with a spin through the Prehistoric Museum at the College of Eastern Utah in Price. Cool if you like dinosaurs and prehistoric stuff.

Tired when I got home, but managed a couple laps around Sugarhouse Park. Was pleased to find it not 100 degrees like it was yesterday in Colorado.

Think I might need to think about training for something.

I've always eaten at the Subway in Green River.

Alta tomorrow night, right?

I'll chalk that Subway comment off to just not knowing no better. Now that you know about Ray's Tavern you have no excuse.

Yep. I'm planning a big (for me anyway) day tomorrow. Six in the morning and then twelve up at Alta at 6 PM.

I'll pack my trail shoes! Looking forward to it.

FYI - we're running from Highland HS @ 630am tomorrow morning as well. Usual easy wednesday group run, ~7 miles.

Cool. I'll be there more than likely.
