Bridle Trails is often just a trail run in which you happen to be holding a map, and today was definitely that. Still very fun to get out on a map! I made the unfortunate mistake of not finding a bathroom before starting, so halfway through I needed to go find a tree. Since bridle trails is a trails-only venue, it thankfully wasn’t too hard to get away from everyone by stepping a ways off the trail. It made me think, though; I’m guessing that some people have had some interesting mid orienteering race bathroom break experiences before.
Crystal. Super low snowpack, and I’m pretty surprised as much of the mountain was open as it was with how little snow there was. Hit a number of rocks, and it’s not even a rocky area! The forecast is for a couple feet of snow this weekend, so fingers crossed that does happen because they need it.
