Ski day at Snow Basin with HD and fam.  Did some Hairdog trail hiking to top of ridge and down the Circ above middle bowl.  Fun stuff, beautiful day.

Always wanted to see more of the BST on the north of SLC so drove to trailhead at City Creek and ran East up the hill trail.  Ran for 4 miles or so winding around on various trails on East Bench.  There are trails criss crossing all over the place so not sure I was even on the main BST all of the time.  Beautiful clear views over SLC, Capital Bldg and UofU.  Trail in mostly good shape with a few mud bog areas.  Coming done almost ate it though on a shaded stretch of pure ice, slid for about 15 feet and somehow stayed up.  Fun times.

Felt kinda crappy on this late afternoon neighborhood run...very likely this was because my son Will and I went on a Donut hunting adventure and drove out to Dunford Donuts home in West Jordan.  It was a donut free for all.  Also on a whim we finished it off with a  Quarter Pounder with cheese for my first McDonalds in about 10 years...first few bites pretty dang awesome...by the last few you start noticing some serious energy sucking going on.  Haha, back to real food I guess.
