This is the desert, right?

Looking forward to 34 miles of snow and ice tomorrow.  Much different conditions than we had last year.  Times will be slower, but it’ll be fun!  This is the view from the starting line.  We’ll climb a bit and make our way into the hanging canyon straight ahead, then end up on the edge of the rim at mile 10 (top right of pic) looking back down on the start.  Then we’ll head south for another 20 or so to finish in another canyon next to the Colorado River.  Sun+Snow+5 hours = remember the sunscreen!
