Marshall Mesa is Muddy
Well of course it is. It just snowed enough to gunk up the dirt on the trail. What I always seem to forget is how sticky the trails get along Marshall Mesa Trail, Community Ditch and Dowdy Draw. Its that wonderful soil that just like to build to a nice girth on the bottom of your shoe, making it very awkward to keep a decent stride. It was a chilly October afternoon with misty cloud cover but the landscape was fantastic, speckled with evergreens, reds, golds, sienna and white.
