I love finding new places to run and explore.
I had no idea what to expect when I started off on this run through Ausable River Cut Conservation Area.
It was quite beautiful running alongside the river,
with some nice places to stop and take it all in,
including this look-out.
I like when there are information plaques like this one to learn more about the unique area and wildlife features.
It’s hard to tell from this picture, but the trail got really sandy once I got further in.
I had to take it slow to traverse this sand dune.
The trail was only two kilometers long. On my second pass through, I decided to run up it instead. That was a lot harder to do than it appeared.
These tire stairs were fun to run up and down.
I haven’t been in a canoe in a while, but had a yearning to explore this river from the view of a boat. Maybe I will one day.
