February Random Weather Patterns

Month 2 of 2017 looked a lot like month 1, only with some sunshine, and a little less snow and a lot of work travel to navigate the running schedule around.  After spending most of my time in January and early February in Forest Park, including a full end to end with some friends I decided it was time to head West to the Tillamook Forest to take in some new sights and sounds and see what kind of shape the trail was in.  Good news, it was excellent. Time mileage and vertical are almost mirrored from Jan.  35 hours, 212 miles, and 31,000 in 3 fewer days.
