Location: Lambert’s Park
Time: 12:32 pm
Weather: Cloudy, snowy, hail
People I saw: Just me
Pain/injuries: Left knee weakness
Notes: In the middle of my niece, Kaitlyn’s mission homecoming weekend, I took some time off to get a run in. I try to bring my running bag wherever I go, just in case I can slip in a run. So I asked my brother in law, Lynn, to drop me off at a trail he’d recommend, near Alpine, Utah.
He started talking about Lambert Park, which is sort of up against the mountain, east of Alpine. He dropped me off and I let him know I’d give him a call when I wanted a pick up (I would have run back to his house, but was up against time constraints). I started off at a slow pace, knowing that climbing the switchback I’d identified from the truck, would require a steady, slow pace for me.
As I climbed, snow fell. Not a lot, but enough to be beautiful and interesting.
