Highlands Sky 40 Mile Trail Run

This Saturday, by God's grace I will run/walk/hike through some of prettiest and awe inspiring sights and sounds this side of the Grand Canyon.  The Highlands Sky 40 Mile trail run, directed by Dan Lehman is Father's Day Saturday.  From the website here is the description.

"The course traverses Roaring Plains and Dolly Sods Wilderness through some of the most rugged and beautiful terrain in West Virginia. Dolly Sods is an area of high elevation, windswept plains ranging from 2500 to 4700 feet elevation. Trail terrain varies from woodland paths, rock and boulder, to upland bogs, through northern hardwoods at lower elevations, to Red Spruce and heath barrens above 4000 feet. Canaan is the highest large valley east of the Mississippi. The Valley creates the headwaters of the Blackwater River and has a unique environment composed of wetlands and uplands with vegetation characteristic of more northern latitudes."

With minor injuries this past year, I am only able to do the first 20 (at best).  

Looking forward to some scenery, and great fellowship among the back of the packers,
