Distance: 22 miles
Weather: Gray and snowing
Up early to meet Steve G., Chris A. and Kristin for a run up Upper Bear Creek Road. Everyone had different mileage plans. Steve turned back at four miles and Chris and Kristin turned back at 7.5 miles. I continued on to the caretaker house at the Mt. Evans State Wildlife Management Area at 8.5 miles. Did a bit of exploring on the way back, including a run up to the Mt. Evans Outdoor Lab, a JeffCo school district property, and an uphill jaunt up Echo Lake Road to King Murphy Elementary and looping back down Whittier Gulch to Upper Bear.
It was snowing off and on the whole time...even had a few tantalizing glimpses of blue sky and sun now and then, but those moments were fleeting at best. We're back to a full-on snow storm now.
Off to Crested Butte tomorrow.
