Sun and Fun at CMSP

With the warm temps on deck again today, we headed to Cheyenne Mountain State Park for some fine trails. Did the long climb from the base all the way up to the top of Talon North, so the first time the camera came out was near the top. No time for pics when you are barely holding your lung in on the climb!!!
It is March and 70 degrees - any questions?
Kathleen coming through the forest on Talon North.
Awesome view of the southwestern flank of Cheyenne Mountain from Talon North.
Almost to the summit of Talon North...
... and over the top we go!
The mountains meet the plains - looking south and east over Fort Carson from the Talon trail.
Steve catching some rays through the pines on Talon South.
Alert from command central - humans approaching!
Kathleen cruising down the Boulder Run.
Finishing up on Coyote Run - it was a good day with 12 miles out on the trails! We wanted 14 or so, but 12 felt like plenty today. With sun and 70 degrees, we did not want the day to end. Happy Trails for sure!

Shoes - Asics Gel Trabuco


This post has been marinating since Sunday night, but finally was released to the wild on Wednesday. We are currently under a Winter Storm Warning through Friday evening - if it pans out, we could be running (or not) on snow for a while! We'll see what happens.

So, S and K....you guys forgot to shut the refrigerator door, and are your darned snow ended up in Oklahoma! Shipping costs to send it back are off the charts, so we'll just have to let it melt. Meanwhile, my shiny new Trabucos are just minutes away from being purty dirty!

Glad we could help break in the new shoes TZ!!! :-)
Sun is out today and we're looking for a quick run on the semi-covered trails - mud, snow, oh well...
