Yesterday, Paul, Allison and I went up to the ski hill where the race is going to be held and we walked briskly up to the top of Fred's mountain. It's nearly 2,000 vertical feet of elevation gain in 2.8 miles - STEEP!!! We came down a different way and it was fun. The Blue Grass Festival was going on and the base area was jammed with people.
Silly us at the top of Fred's Mountain
Today the three of us went for a 2 hour trail run up Pole Canyon. We saw a buck moose with a big rack. He ran away before I could get my camera out of the backpack. On our way home, we saw a bald eagle. This picture looks like the last one I posted but I swear it's a different eagle. Allison's so tough, she ran home (11 miles) after our 2 hour trail run!
