Another tough "middle". My body was about done before starting this. So, it's been a good training camp. The snow was about ankle deep which made running somewhat more difficult and seeing some features tougher.
On the long leg I decided to take the trails since I wasn't moving too quickly in the terrain and some of the downhills were pretty tough (not seeing the rocks underfoot mainly). Unfortunately the trails were essentially invisible also. I tried catching two trails and missed them both and didn't read the features accurately enough to realize I went past them. So I ended up way past my goal. Took a bearing to the nearest trail and kept going.
I had to cut this short since I had a flight to catch. Really beautiful there though.
