Recalls my returning last Nov 30 to run the brown courses (well maybe both & did). It was sunny but cold (25F) in the parking lot around 9am and the woods were mostly shade. So maybe green & bugs for contrast sometime this summer.
Years ago, in Concord, MA, I remember leaving a cloud of hotly pursuing deerflies at woods edge. All fun, after a fashion.
Just need to be a little more careful to navigate the contours with less visibility.
