Sunday, 03/28/10 Green Mountain

Spring is back, low 60's today which is slowly melting the snow. Bumped into Brandon who was returning from the summit after running there from home, the bumped in Rex and Caroline. Much of Gregory Canyon is melting out, above that it is all snow, but the trail is getting a bit wider and seeing more traffic. Footing was decent with Microspikes on the up and I felt more efficient than in days past. I went pretty casual, just enjoying the day and going Sierra's pace.

As Brandon warned, the down was really slick due to the sloppy slush and soft snow, so I just went very easy on the down as well.

Up Gregory/Ranger: 44:01 Avg. HR 143, Max 158
Down Gregory/Ranger: 29:10 Avg. HR 115, Max 133
