Purple Death and Other Trails

Ran with the group. A quite steep, aerobic hike up “car canyon” for warm up. Followed by 15 second strides on the service road, Vista Del Valle. Then more aerobic scrambling up “Dee Dee’s” ridge, followed by some pushes up the hill when there was any traction on the trail. By the time we are up top we are well above the inversion layer, looking down on Bee rock, at least 1000 feet vertically from where we started, and have only come .8 mile. Back down the winding trail down they call “purple death.” Some nice sections of downhill sprinting and cruising. Altogether satisfying. About 3 miles.
