Day 5 in Winter Park

Started the day's run on Chainsaw trail, another prime moose area - but the moose were hiding from us this trip!
We then ran up Flume trail, which follows an old logging flume along the stream - remnants of the flume remain beside the trail.
Kathleen is blazing down the Creekside trail with a nice view of the St Louis Creek flowing behind her. There is a lot of water moving through the valley still with all the snow left on the mountains!
Steve runs through one of the rocky sections on Creekside - fancy footwork came in handy on these trails.
We could not resist another shot from the Byers Peak overlook.
Bringing it home on the final section of Creekside trail. We ran 7.5 miles and once again it was Good Times!!! We picked up Sage from playing with her new friends at Mountain Dawg, stopped off at Rocky Mountain Roastery for some jet fuel (local coffee roaster with some of the best beans Steve has sampled), and headed home!!! We are blessed to have abundant recreational opportunities so close to home and we always make an effort to be thankful and not take them for granted!
