I did day one in Ash Canyon where I did a nice climb and out and back on the new trail. The only tracks in the snow were those of a deer, a bobcat and a huffing runner. Peaceful and quiet (except for the heavy breathing), and as a bonus, I made it back to the car before the rain came.
Sunday I headed to Centennial. The storm had arrived, but, as usual in this area, most of the precipitation hung on the west side of town, and Centennial - being on the northeast - was only windy. The wind was cold as it enhanced my evaporative cooling, but I was still out there in shorts and only two layers on top (same as Saturday). I did the Devil's Butterfly route, but this time I switched it up and did it clockwise. Not sure if it really made a difference on my time (I ran hard) but it was nice for a bit of a different look. As usual, the wild horses were out, but at least this time, they weren't hogging the trail. I only saw them from a distance. I do wonder, though, why they seem to poop so much directly on the trail?
Looking forward to achieving a milestone on the upcoming Pre-Snarf C-Hill T-Day trudge scheduled for Thursday on the 8 Mile EZ Up route. More on that when it occurs.
