The drive down was pretty much marked with rain, fog, and mountain views (when the clouds let up). On Saturday, however, things were different. We awoke to heavy fog, and Scott decided to hold off on his run. He had found a route close to the hotel that was just the right distance, so we drove it to scout it.
This was the first time I really insisted on going out for his run. It just felt "right" and he accepted. We drove the route and at the end found a dirt road. I encouraged him to drive it a bit, just out of curiosity. He did. It lead to some amazing views (even in the fog) and changed his running plan.
I shot pictures while he explored a bit, and then we returned to the hotel for all of the minimally needed items (like a hat and gloves) before returning for more running and photographing.

This was taken from the car going about 60 mph with Scott at the wheel.
The detour in the last photo was the result of I-15 being at a stand still just north of Beaver. We opted to make a 4-hour drive with an unknown-length-of-waiting on I-15 a side trip to new areas of beauty.
Once we found our bearings at a McDonald's in Beaver, we continued south to 20 before taking 89 north. We then took 70 west before reconnecting with 15 and making the drive back home.
