Tuesday May 21 #


The plan for today was to run some intervals and see how that would go (knee), and while the weather forecast again wasn't great, at least it was better than yesterday, and I wasn't worried about getting shut out again. Of course there was some decent wind, but so what. That's like rain in Seattle.

And when I got up top and was driving by the Visitors Center, I looked down the frontage road and could see a work crew at the Forest gate at the end of the paved section, and *couldn't* see the gate. Had the gates been opened today, and was the gate just open for the work crew?

I drove to the gate and one of the crew members told me that Law Enforcement (Forest Service) had just been there and had unlocked the gate. So through I went, parked at my usual spot, and ran intervals in the wind. For brief moments there was even a little sun peeping through the clouds, as some kind of tease and a reminder that the Solstice is just a month away.

By the time I finished the wind had notched out, and had a distinct chilly edge to it. Coming down off the hill you could see a half dozen or so snow squalls scattered around in the valley, and one had Laramie completely enveloped as I was driving into town.
