Twin Peaks Trail

I am trying to concentrate on uphill right now, while the steeper trails are still snow-free.  Today I hiked and ran up and down the Twin Peaks Trail.  There was a little snow on the upper portion of the trail, and near the top there was some serious overflow with a lot of ice.  I decided to turn around rather than try to negotiate that ice flow.  But it was a gorgeous but cold day.  No wind though.  There seemed to be no one else on the trail too.  At the midway viewpoint I got the usual spectacular view of Eklutna Lake and Bold Peak.  Breathtaking as usual.  It was nice to get in some serious uphill, keeping Mt. Kilimanjaro in mind.
