Thursday, October 1 - Elk Meadow Open Space

Run: Thursday, October 1st - Meadow View Trail
Time: 1:00
Distance: 7 miles
Effort: Easy
Body: Average
Weather: Cool - breezy

An easy, relaxed seven miles on the Sleepy S - Painter's Pause - Social trail - Meadow View loop. Beautiful,sunny day, but with a bit of a chill in the air. Felt under-dressed in shorts and a t-shirt. Hands actually got cold...first time this fall. A sure sign of things to come.

The meadow was looking beautiful in the late afternoon sun. The grass is now all brown and splashes of fall colors dotted the flanks of Bergen Peak. In places where the upper part of Meadow View dips down into draws, golden aspen leaves covered the trail. Only saw one person the entire seven miles.
