These are the Paradise Stairs at Oregon Caves National Monument, near Cave Junction. I confess I have a thing for caves. I've been to Carlsbad Caverns, but not since I was a kid. There are a couple of little caves near where we live in Wisconsin.
Today was a tough run. I didn't sleep really well, and after yesterday, I was of course pretty sore. It wasn't too hot, but it was sure humid. So I knew from the beginning that I was going to have a chance to practice my mental toughness. Just put one foot in front of the other and keep on running. Which I did. I was happy with my effort.
