Trail Running in the Sandias

Here we go! My wife and I headed out about 4 pm for a quick run up the mountain. It was sleeting and snowing as we got higher and higher on the uphill trail. From the parking lot it was sandy and beginning to refreeze. Then as we entered the pines up higher the ground was frozen and fresh snow covered the narrow and winding path. Jane and I slipped now and then as we covered mile after mile up the mountain. On the way we passed a decapitated snow man with a giant penis, but other than that we experienced total silence in an immaculate pine forest. I just cut nearly all my hair off so I needed a winter hat to maintain a good temperature and tried to keep up with my lightening fast wife.

What a great evening session on the trail. here is a little clip.
