It’s time for another photographic tour.
I so love doing these. I lace up my shoes, strap a camera to my wrist, explore a new trail, and snap pictures along the way. Then I post them here so you can be my virtual running partner. And if you are so inspired, perhaps you will go hike or run these trails as well.
Today, we are exploring The Mill Run Trail in Cambridge, Ontario. The trail starts at Riverside Park but I did not go through this historic entrance. Instead I kept driving passed it without turning.
The road winds passed a skatepark and some soccer fields and then it comes to an end at Speedsville Road. This is where I parked and started my run.
The trail runs alongside the river and it’s nice and quiet back here.
It then links up to a very nice boardwalk that spans 80 meters.
There are several information plaques along the boardwalk . . .
and several places to stop and enjoy the scenery.
Of course, I was too busy running to slow down for longer than the ten seconds it takes to steady my camera and snap a shot every few minutes.
When I got to the end of the boardwalk, I took it all the way to the soccer fields, turned around, and then made my way over this bridge.
I snapped a picture of this bunny and then slowly walked closer to get a better shot. But he took off into the bush and I took off further down the trail.
I was really happy to see the trail loop its way back to Speedsville Road. By this time, I’d been running for about twenty minutes and covered roughly 5 kilometers.
The trail continued on the other side of the road and I ran down it for another five minutes. I wanted to see where it lead.
I think I am going to have to go back to this spot and run the other side of it. The trail brochure looks pretty awesome. There’s a lot more trail to cover and more photographs to be taken.
