Trail Run: Speckled Mountain

I got up early on a Monday morning to get in a mountain run before picking up my kids for a vacation day. I try to stick to the rule of running or hiking at least as long as the total drive time. Sometimes the pull to the mountains is greater than arbitrary rules. On the summit I met a guy who spent the previous couple days hiking and camping in the Caribou/Speckled Mountains, and that morning made the long drive home. When he got there he realized he had lost his false front teeth. Amazingly, he made the drive back up to the mountains, hiked back up Speckled Mountain to where he had camped over night, and found his teeth on the ground!
