About NATRA Blog

This page is meant for folks to post their thoughts on the Saturday group run. I (Neil) will post a blurb about who showed up and where it was held. From there, I hope that other runners will share their thoughts since we often have different experiences on the same run. Enjoy!

Oldham Steps

David, Bruce, Amber, Mackenzie, Janie, Tony, Eric, Neil, Jutt, Sara, new comer Jessie and 3 dogs (Skylar, Annika, and Jasper) sloshed through the ice, mud and slush over the 4.5 miles of the first two Oldham steps. Our newbie runner Jessie doing her student teaching here seemed unphased by the inclement weather, a far cry from what she's used to in North Dakota! Bypassed by many, before the steep climb back up to Buffalo Park, we spied a Beale Wagon Road trail marker breaking through the snow. Lt. Beale led a survey crew in the late 1850s to build the first federal wagon road across the west. Visit the TomJonas web site to learn more about the history of the Beale Wagon Road. We again found ourselves recovering from the damp chill of the run at the Seasoned Kitchen. Download today's photos.
