48 up (avg HR 143)
31 down (avg HR 121)

Tim, Sierra and I got out for a casual lap on Green this morning. The temps last night in the low 20's (or less up there) really froze the snow into some great hardpack. We went pretty easy, just catching up on the last ~year since Tim has been away living in Cali. It felt as though he had only been gone a few weeks and was great to be back on the trails with a good friend. For grins, I tested the strength of the crusty snow off the trail and it completely held me, even when stomping downhill. With Microspikes on my feet, it was somewhat reminiscent of biking the Slickrock Trail in Moab. It would be a real blast to make up some routes early in the morning if it stays cold enough.
