When we don’t have time to spend a whole day running an epic, really pointy-mountain run, we head to the West Bragg Creek trails for a glimpse of the mountains and big, hilly, treed trails. This Saturday we needed to be back in town and prettied up for a holiday gala by the evening, so we hiked and ran around 15 km in a few hours.

Many of the trails were really icy (see photos), so we put our Kahtoola microspikes over our trail shoes and crunched confidently along. Usually when we run here I marvel at the quiet, and enjoy the sounds of nature. This time the sound of metal-on-ice was very loud, but it was better than slipping.

We took Ranger Summit, Bobcat, the north side of Fullerton, and then took Elbow back. We might have tackled Snagamore, but didn’t feel we’d get back in time if we did.

The outing was enough to satisfy my wish for a mountain-y run, and we got back in time for a lovely gala.
