Sundown at Keystone

70 degrees in January. Now I like snow and cold, but it was hard to complain as I put on shorts and a t- shirt for this evening's run. On a whim I decided to drive out to explore the singletrack trails by the Keystone Dam. There are at least three different trails, all loops, of varying levels of difficulty. I was surprised to see how well maintained they all are. None of the terrain is particularly steep, but the abundance of rocks keep your eyes glued to the ground. Even though the area is bordered by the railroad tracks and route 151, the cleaner air and distance from the city give it a more remote feel than Turkey Mountain. While the post oak and boulders were pretty enough, the big sky stole the show this evening.
