I had originally thought to run a tenner from Spooner Summit to the Bench and back (actually about 11, but tenner sounds cooler), tagging along with the ccrunners and TMM group run, but still "doing my own thing" at my own pace.
Then, I recalled the Sierra Canyon trail (part of the Genoa Trail system) was newly completed from Genoa to the Tahoe Rim Trail, and I had never been on it. Round trip on that would have been close to a double tenner — a bit far for me. I thought a bit more about it and contacted the ccrunners group and arranged for a ride back to Genoa, if I could make it to Spooner Summit and didn't mind waiting for a bit for them to arrive after their 25+ mile run.
That sounded reasonable to me, so I put my end-of-run stuff in Abbey's car, and drove to Genoa to load up my pack and explore a new trail!
At that point, the trail trended down, gradually dropping to the Spooner Summit south parking area. I was lucky enough to hitch a ride with no waiting around. I was glad for that, since I had a collapsed garage shelf at home to deal with, and I hadn't brought along reading materials to tide me over for an extended wait.
All in all, a great Memorial Day weekend of being out and about.
