High Cliff State Park

I spent about an hour running around High Cliff State Park this weekend.  I can't recommend it enough!  There are a couple options for events this summer:

The CliffRunner 10k on July 21st - More Info Here.

High Cliff 50k/25k on August 11th - This will be a FunRun/FatAss event, with a marked course and a couple aid stations.  Put it on your calendar today!

I've never seen a sign like that when running before!

That's the cliff at the end of the trail.

Statue of Chief Red Bird

Stone Fence that just went on forever...right in the midle of the woods!

Stairway Up, UP, Up!

2013 NK 50k

This year's weather made things interesting for the 3rd Annual NK 50k.

5 very stubborn runners got it done, though, earning the highly coveted 31.6 sticker...and a Greenbush Trail Runners shirt.

Here are some snapshots of the day.  I am disappointed with myself for not getting a group shot or any shot of the food and beer that was eaten at Fudgies afterwards!

The View looking south from about 4 miles in to the run.  Sunburst Ski Hill in the distance.

No Snow...for now.  Beautiful single track was the scene for the first 5-10 miles.

The rivers are running high

Jennifer, steady as always.

The trail transitioned from snow to dirt to ice the entire day.

This guy was crabby about the weather.

Jennifer finishes up the NK 50k!

Matt finishes a couple minutes later!
