Mule Mt Pass
Late yesterday, Ted and I explored the new BLM trails on Swasey Road, then over the pass to Whiskeytown NRA and ran a little on the mountain bike trails by Horse Camp and back again. Only 16 miles but we started on the edge of Redding (pop: 90K) and were quickly over the ridge to the uninhabited ("nobody here but us ultrarunners") wilds of bear country.
It was a beautiful day and I felt great the whole way. Ted ("Shouldn't We Be Turning Around Soon?") seemed to have a good time too.
