    Had a great time running and hiking barefoot during our two week long vacation exploring parks in Utah, Arizona, Colorado and Nevada.

    It was actually a comfortable family trip. Two weeks is plenty of time for me. For most of the runs I would wake up early before sunrise hitting the trails before it got too hot. My wife and my son were still sleeping in the tent while I was enjoying an hour or two of the best running.

    We also stayed in Moab for two days and biked the famous Slickrock Trail and a couple of Moab Brands trails.

    Wow! That's all I can say. Sure beats running in mud in a rain-sodden West Wales :(

    Wow what a nice trip! Those pictures are amazing. They look like post card photos or photos from a magazine!

    It would be awesome to take a trip like this to do some barefoot running. One of my favorite things is to run in new places or on new routes. Might have to plan a trip like this for next summer.
