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!

Picture Canyon Celebration Run

Watch more videos on Flotrail

22 NATRA runners, and dogs Daisy, and Dylan celebrated the City of Flagstaff's purchase of Picture Canyon. We were also joined by Flagstaff Fit Moms Race. It was a GORGEous (no pun intended) day with the essence of Purina Dog Chow filling the air. A little over two weeks ago, on October 30, 2012, the City of Flagstaff purchased Picture Canyon at an auction on the steps of the Coconino County Courthouse. To learn more about that historic day, visit the 10/30/2012 blog .  The Arizona Trail provides the perfect way to run back through time and enjoy a piece of Flagstaff History that is on the National Register of Historic Places. NATRA runners visited several of the canyon's petroglyphs and viewed Flagstaff's only waterfall. Afterwards we hit the Kickstand where we replenished ourselves with the $2 special chocolate gelato shakes. We also bid adieu to Josh who is heading back to his job in Hot Springs, Arkansas!  Take care Josh! We are glad you found us!  


  1. I forgot to mention, Neil...We gotta do a run back at Sycamore canyon like last year round this time. It feels like it should be an autumn tradition now or something. That was the best. Today was pretty awesome too, tho :)
