I did a combination hike and run today. Up the Twin Peaks trail then down across the creek and up to the top of the ridge to look over into Palmer and the Knik River. It was an amazing view, and very windy. When I got back down to the second bench at the 2.5 mile mark, I ran the rest of the way down because I needed to meet my friend Diane for dinner. It was nice to get a good run in after a very steep hike. The fall colors were positively amazing too. The total distance was 7.44 miles.
