Mountain Weather

One of the amazing things about living in the mountains is how quickly the weather can change. I decided to run from my house to and up Thumb Butte. It can be reached by running up Thumb Butte Road which is a paved road that quickly climbs in elevation as it runs west toward Thumb Butte Recreation area in the Prescott National Forest.

The run started with a clear sky and warm day. Once I reached the mountain, clouds started rolling in and I was in the middle of heavy monsoon rain. The trail quickly turned to mud and the temperature dropped fast. It was so much fun running up the mountain in the rain, but was hard to see as my sun glasses were blurry with all the water.

Once I started to hear the thunder and see lighting flashes I knew it was time to head back down the mountain.
