Saturday, April 21st:
After the 1/2 Marathon we drove to Las Vegas

|My son watching the fountains|
|Volcano at The Mirage|
|Pirate ship at Treasure Island|
We stayed the night at my wife's uncle's place in Vegas. In the morning we got up and drove to California.

Monday April 23, I got up and ran around Disneyland (about 4 miles) and felt rejuvenated and ready to hit Disneyland with the fam.
|Trying to pull the sword out of the stone.|
|Woody was one of the highlights.|
|The Monte Cristo at Cafe Orleans. It is basically a doughnut with ham and cheese inside. It was even a bit much for me. But very delicious.|
|Homeless camp or makeshift bmx park?|
|Dirt road to the clouds|
|Heading up Potato Mountain|
|Potato Mountain Summit|
|Potato Mountain Summit #2|
Sunday I rested and hung out with the family.
Monday morning I took my recently purchased Trail Gloves for their first run. I ran to a bike path and then along the beach before heading back to my sister in law's house.
Ran in the trail gloves again on Tuesday. I tried to stay on the dirt on the side of the trail as much as possible.
After the run we packed up and started driving home. We stopped to see the Calico ghost town.
|We toured part of a mine and they had these dummies from the 70's|
|In the mine|
|Dillan eating a slice of pizza at Nathan's in New York New York|
|Had to see the fountains again|
Now that I'm back in Utah I had to hit up a mountain that I recently discovered; Saddleback Mountain. It was overcast yesterday and I decided to go for it anyway. I think I covered the story fairly well on my dailymile post so I'll just share the pictures.
|To show how steep it was this is looking across the mountain directly to my left as I went up.|
|A campsite on short saddle. One of the brief runnable parts|
|Anyone know what these giant panels are for?|
|I have no idea what all these bricks are for.|
|The pile of rocks marks the summit at about 7500'|
|Me at the top|
|Coming back down out of the clouds|
|I don't think these pictures do justice to how steep this is.|
