Goodwill Route; 8:48 pace.
Yesterday, driving to my Mission, the landscape was stunning with a heavy hoarfrost covering all the trees. Today, that had given way to snow, which has been falling lightly all night. A different kind of beautiful - both are awesome.
This route is a local road, usually unplowed except for after the heaviest snow, so I follow the tire ruts - works well enough, and the traffic is not very heavy.
The snow continued to fall - huge, fluffy flakes. Like running through little cotton balls.
A wolf looking dog joined me for one mile. Had never seen it before, but it was friendly enough. Ran just in front of me, and at times beside me. Then got bored and dashed off into the woods.
