Running a half-marathon through Dry Fork Canyon

No, it wasn't me that ran 13 miles on Saturday!  It was my daughter, Amber.  Some of my more devoted followers may remember me posting cross-country race pictures of her when she was in high school. Now she is in college studying Exercise Science.  She stays very fit and active by running regularly.  This was her first half-marathon.

The canyon has lots of spectacular rock formations.

My mother likes the abstract forms in the rocks.  She's an artist who likes to paint abstracts.

The day was chilly and cloudy.  Fall is on its way.

Canyon swallows live here.

And here she comes crossing the finish line!  Awesome job!  I had fun taking pictures all the way down the canyon too.
