snow run

Did a late morning training run over half the LLTH course. The views were great with the snow outlining the scenery like a postcard. The tracks I saw were of all the animals that took advantage of the trails in the hilly terrain. Deer, rabbits, raccoons, turkeys, cats, dogs & a few I couldn’t recognize – but no people! It always surprises me that with a quarter million plus people literally within sight from the forest hill tops, that no one comes out to enjoy it on days like this (JMF is advertised as the largest metropolitan forest in all of the USA). So as I ran quietly over the many miles of snow padded trails, I thought -- their loss, my gain!
