More Trail Recon













































Lest you think that the name the H8TR Trail is some cute appelation like calling a big guy "Tiny" or a bald guy "Curly", a recon trip on the trail last Sunday should immediately make you think otherwise.

Warm, sunny weather the last couple days and then the steady downpour from today has melted a lot of the snow on the trail but about fifty yards from the mouth of the Tunnel Of H8T it's still mid January.

But then when you get to the actual tunnel it looks as though you've stumbled onto a tropical rain forest! If tropical rain forests hovered at around 30 degrees! The good news is that there's a lot less ice in the tunnel than last year. The bad news is that the Kittenmaster got a bad bad evil idea for an alternate route in case the tunnel is impassable. bad bad bad.....

Elsewhere rivers of runoff ran wild across the trail and this is where part of the race fee goes, filling in those troughs and gulleys and keeping the H8TR an enjoyable experience for all. wait, did I just say that??? Crap I must be slipping.....
