Todat Deb and I had some business in Albuquerque, so we ran the Pino trail in the Sandias. This is a wonderful all uphill trail that starts around 6500' and tops out at 9500' and is about 4.8 miles to the top. The downhill back down is a fantastic run on smooth trails, but this time the snow was 6-8 inches deep about midway to the crest.

Hardrock Course marking - Kroger's Canteen to Governor's
Nice day today with a great crew. We marked it light as most will be here in the daylight, but made sure to put in enough flags so no one will go off course.
Weather was Hardrock weather, as hail and rain fell on us up high.
As you can see in the photos, basically no snow, but the scree is packed and wet, so easy to traverse.
