rim rock marathon

saturday there will be a marathon, over the monument, one of the most scenic marathons anywhere. this will be the first year it is a full marathon. for years it has been rim rock run, and was only 22 miles long. either way, i won't be running.

it is also a great time of year to view the big horn sheep.. they square off about 20 feet apart, or more, and running forward to crash their heads together..... it makes a great booming, that echos of the canyon walls. november and december are prime time for head banging, and a herd of them live up the canyon. lucky me, just a half hours walk....
