Amazing, I finally saw the sun today. A nice change from perpetual fog and overcast. But it is now overcast again. I had planned to do a long run but decided to take advantage of the nice weather and drive down the Dalton Highway a bit to see if I could find any interesting wildlife. Didn't see a single animal. But it was a nice drive. When I got back, I did my run from the hotel around Colleen Lake and back, around 6 miles. My Nike+ is still working, which I really like! The sun was out but that didn't make the wind stop blowing. Not quite as strong as yesterday but still a challenge. Plus the water truck had been by on the road, followed by the grader, thus leaving a muddy mess for me to run in. It just gave me a better workout because so much mud was clinging to my running shoes that it was like running with lead weights on my feet. I have to have a positive attitude about things like that. I do love running around the lake. It sure beats running back and forth on a 1/4 mile stretch of the road like I so often have done in the past. It gives me a continually changing scene, and a lovely one at that.
There was a bit of early autumn color showing out on the tundra so I did take a few photos. This was my favorite for today.
