Above the clouds

Beautiful run on the Humbug Contour Road this morning. In it, I literally ran out of, or rather ran above, the clouds. This view is across the valley where clouds/fog obscure Lincoln.

The temperature was 30 degrees as I started and as I finished. A thin layer of ice lay on puddles, and the grass up high was frosted.

This is looking just a little more westerly toward Black Mountain and Huckleberry pass.

This is the moment of emerging from the fog, probably a quarter to a half mile below the upper (and closed atm wildlife gate).

Driving north from Lincoln, I emerged from the dense fog just a mile or so short of my Contour Road trailhead. Running on the road, it didn't take long to get back to the fog.

This is just a little higher up than the last picture.

I ran all the way to the upper switchbacks, same as a week ago when I ran into all the glacier lilies. Didn't see any today, come to think of it.
