First run around the lake this season! Snow free. A few humans here and there. Mostly out fishing. A huge set of trees is down along the Turquoise Lake Trail near the biggest drainage stream. I had to go down to the shore to go around it. Once on the shoreline, I figured why return to the trail. The lake is really dry at the west end so I ran up the middle of the lake bed floor. There is sort of a road along parts of it. Jumped between small islands at some point to avoid water. Pretty uneventful otherwise.
Thought I would have some sort of moment on my first return to Mayqueen. But I didn't. I was like "meh" and moved on. Fully knowing I will be back there for years to come.
The road back was tiring. After being away for quite a few weeks, I have lost most of my acclimatization. Bonked at the end but just good to be back at it. Spent the rest of the day relaxing.
The boat ramp.
Running down in the lake.
Where's the water? Confused how there is no water in the spring but its totally full in the winter.
Welcome back to your nightmare.
Got another souvenir on my run for our resident bone collector!
I went 15.40 miles with an elevation gain of 1,044 feet in 02:42:36, which is an average pace of 10:34. View my GPS data on Garmin Connect.
