Thursday, 03/04/10 S. Boulder, Bear, Green, Flagstaff, Sanitas

Ran/hiked the skyline traverse with Brandon from the S. Mesa TH today. Forecast was for near 60 degrees and I decided to go with shorts/tee (with arm warmers), which turned out to be a good call.

The weather was perfect, but trail conditions were all over the place, dry, muddy, slushy, icy, hard packed snow, knee deep post holing snow and 10lbs of mud sticking to each shoe sloppy. We went a moderate pace most of the time with some easy cruising mixed in. Sanitas as usual was a grunt and I was thankful to be done, as today's run is about at the limit of my not yet enduring endurance, but was a great stepping stone.

We just had an awesome time enjoying good conversation, warm sun and great scenery. Bumped into the elusive Kraig K at the top of Green and chatted with him for a while.
