There was enough packed trail on the snowshoe trail by afternoon to do some running there, so that's where I started, doing and out-and-back, and then continued across the highway and ran up the Forest Service road past Antenna Hill to the cattle guard where the road splits. Beautifully clear day with the air going purple to the east as the sun set. Another no wind day, so extra nice for running! Some hunters were out driving around, but none of them had drawn a runner tag (they're really hard to get), so I was safe.
Back at the parking lot, an acquaintance was walking off the trail head just as I got back, so we stopped and talked as dusk went over to night. It wasn't cold out, but it took only a few minutes for post-run chilliness to set in--typical for this time of year.
