Trail Conditions: Fair
Snow Cover: Fair to "yikes"
Date of Report: February 23, 2021
I apologize for a delay in my report. Last week Tuesday and Wednesday, I ran with Craig and Jill in Eagle River, as they had points to burn on a time share, good conditions. Then I was forced to abandon my post, and retreat south due to my position being overrun by women with cookbooks and at least (4) garbage bags of wine. I was allowed back into the county yesterday, and had to work on my furnace. Today I went on drive about. Trail 15, the grade, suspect. It’s brown. Last week we waited until 10:00 for it to warm up to zero, and today I saw a kid running on Stearns Lake road bare chested at 42 degrees. Stearns Lake is good on the south end, but up toward boundary trail it gets bald. Boundary Trail is thin. The trail along F has snow in the ditch, but unless you and your carbides are not friends, avoid the asphalt. I did what every reporter does, and went public. I met three guys at Black Bear, that said the same thing – good snow in woods yet, but bare where the sun gets at the trail, and avoid the asphalt trails. We are due for snow tonight, so lets hope for something good! Wolf
