Something about the taste of instant coffee and the promise of an uncomfortable night in the back of a Hyundai Santa Fe becomes so appealing when it coincides with a plethora of other-worldly sights. With 16 Google Maps tabs still open on my laptop depicting a theoretical route through a handful of well known locations in Utah and Arizona, Sarah and I took off accompanied by the voice of Sarah Koenig and a large box of goldfish.
About 5 and a half days were dedicated to this Southwest trek - not enough, but it'll have to do. Following all the dry air, I spent a few days in the significantly more saturated environment of the Olympic Peninsula, a classic Washingtonian Spring Break destination. A day of celebrating Holi and a few purchased Harvard Business Cases later, my final quarter of undergrad has begun.

We happen to run into badass runner, Jay Harcum, in Zion. He was generous enough to do a spontaneous trail run shoot on his favorite Zion trail at sunset while guiding a college trip through the park. Among many others, Jay has run the San Diego 50 and will be running Boston for his second time this year.
