There was a nice mixture of snow & dry dirt to run on as shown by my pics below. While the few lookouts over the plains were nice, I really found the most enjoyment running in the trees. Once you get the initial climb over with, there's some splendid singletrack that is nothing but rolling fun. With about 3 miles to go, I passed a guy (Todd Butler) for the second time. We stopped and talked as he asked if I was running out in Moab next month. It appears we both are, so it was nice to talk running ultras for a bit. After about 10 minutes, I started getting the chills with the wind picking up, so we parted ways and I cruised back down to the parking lot.
