Here are a few photos of our day hiking and swimming on the West Clear Creek Trail last Sunday.
...the photos say it all. Awesome day.
Tuesday: 10 miles (TEMPO at Buffalo Park. Ran there to warm up. Ran 3 miles twice at 80%(21:15, 21:13) with about 7 minutes of jogging in between and then ran home to warm down) + 2 miles (to work and home) = 12 miles
Today: 21 miles (Ran from house to Dry Lake Hills on Urban Trail. Did the Schultz, Sunset, Brookbank, Rocky Ridge Loop and then ran back home on the Urban Trail. Felt like I was struggling the whole way but still ran the 21 miles and almost 2,000 feet of elevation gain in a decent time for me of 3:20.
Oh...by the way. I just found out that the Inner Basin Trail is open to foot traffic...no more fire closure in the Peaks Wilderness Area. Can't wait for the snow to melt up there...
The road to the Inner Basin is still closed to cars though (foot traffic only) and Little Bear Trail on Mt. Elden is still closed too due to the fire last year. Time will tell if they open this summer or not.
