We didn't get enough miles in, but we did get out and do this for four hours today!
The whole way we felt like we were sliding off the trail.
The other day I woke up to this. Welcome to April in Colorado. It doesn't snow all winter and then at the end of March it dumps.
Trying to get geared up for racing season in this stuff is a challenge. Katy went up to Dillon and skied all day Saturday. The roads were bad, and last night we talked about changing our plans to something really boring, like pavement. But this morning the sky looked clear and it was supposed to stay cold. Good trail conditions, at least the mud wouldn't be an issue. Right?
Four hours of shoe-sucking mud, slush and snowdrifts later, we had our workout in and the hills were socked in and snow was coming down in time for Katy's drive home. It didn't look so bad to the north, but it was blowing in from the west and the wind picked up.
The views from the Blue Sky Trail and the Indian Summer loop were worth the slopfest.
More mud=More fun.
