37° out today and the snow cover, that I was so happy about, is quickly disappearing. A couple days ago what was 6" is now more like 3". Took a photo across from the slope I run down and around a bed of cattails. You can see the prints in the snow. Noticed by other snowshoe tracks that someone else followed my lead.
Also a quick look across the pond at the cairns someone built this summer when the water level reached its lowest level since I've been running the trails around the quarry.
I used a trick to help keep the snow from packing unto the snowshoes...silicone spray on the cleats. It was still a chore to run in these conditions and it took a bit longer today. I took the dog out for a 4 mile warmup then used the snowshoes for an additional 6 for a 10 mile day.
