Mount Audubon

Woke up early and headed to Indian Peaks to run/hike Mount Audubon. It was 38F when I started at 7:30am

A Ptarmigan - plenty at about 12,000' - lots of Pikas too

Half a mile and over 500' up talus to go

Views from the summit. 4 miles and 2,789' in about 1:35

The run down started poorly with a wipe-out down a loose trail. No serious damage. Aside from banging up my ankles on the rocky trail all else went well and back to the trailhead in maybe 1:10

No moose sightings today. Speaking of, here is the moose from last weekend's races up at Eldora in Nederland (pic not by us)
