The 9th ALTAR this year never took place. A winter snow tsunami hit Asheville, NC Friday night shutting down all major interstates and dumping more than 10 inches of snow. Travel to Asheville was possible but risky, thus many of the runners bailed out. Scott, Liz, and Carl, all from Georgia made it to Camp Daniel Boone and went on a hike up Cold Mountain and back on Saturday.
Charlie, Matt, David, and I made it to Brevard late in the morning and decided to go for a short run/hike. We ended up running an 8 mile loop. Downed rhododendron’s made many sections much harder and slower than they would have been. The wet snow was perfect for making snowmen, but made the run harder than it would have been with powdery snow.
Word is out that the ALTAR maybe put on in the weeks to come.
