Saturday we combined roller skiing and a trail run into a two and a half hour OD. (Editors note: We have a rule here at the JNT, if there is no picture, video or GPS track, it didn’t happen. As there are no pictures of the roller ski, assume the worst.)
(The run however) was glorious, following footpaths so lightly used the freshly fallen leaves had almost made them disappear. An approaching cold front brought light showers and at one point the sun broke through to make a rainbow. The vista from the highest ridgeline all one could ask for when the fall colors are out. The run was 1 hour and 20 minutes long and 10 minutes after we got back to the car, the cold front arrived full force with gusty winds and pelting rain.
