Running Passed the Farms

I decided to go for a run out in the boonies. I was visiting a friend up in farm country and he told me of a trail not too far away from his house. So I took my camera, laced up my running shoes, and hit the road.

Not all of the streets here have sidewalks.

The houses look really nice though. It’s a quiet neighbourhood and I quite enjoyed my run down the streets.

I can see the farmer’s fields just ahead of this curve.

I’ve never really ran through farm country before, It was nice to see the crops in nice, neat rows.

I’m a city boy through and through so I’m not too familiar with farming. I think this might be corn but I’m not sure.

I zoomed past the train tracks. It’s strange seeing these without the barrier arms as well. The trail is still a kilometer or so ahead.

There is the unassuming entrance to the trails. It’s a good thing my friend described where it was to me in such detail or I might have run right by it.

I so love trail running. It is so much better than running on the street.

I even saw a deer jumping through the bush at one point. Unfortunately he was too quick for me and disappeared into the bush before I could snap a picture.

Well, that’s about it. The trails then opened up back to a different road that I was able to loop around for a nice 5 kilometer run.

I completed this course in just over 20 minutes. It was a very nice run that I will have to do again. Now, if only I could get my friend to join me. Wouldn’t that be great? If I lived here, I’d be running this trail every day. Well, he doesn’t know what he’s missing.

I hope you enjoyed my visual running tour. I hope to do this again for you soon with another route and from a different location.
Photographic Tours – great places to run or hike

  4. Hi Hilary,

    It might not be corn. I still don't know much about farming.

    I do love finding new places to run though and will be sharing a new photo tour with you all soon.
