After sharing my dismay yesterday about cougar calves and all things hilly in Pullman, Washington, it is only right to tell the rest of the story. This town has an extraordinary route to run via the Pullman Loop Trail which offer gorgeous scenery with an eclectic combination of big blue sky, luscious greenery, rolling acres, and old-time industrial chic.
Here are just a few of my favorite photos, captured while interval running/walking/photo-taking with my daughter (pushing the stroller) and grandson.
Our run started bright and early because the temperatures and humidity are soaring. It is as hot here as it is at home in Phoenix! Of course, we needed to go down a hill to get to the trail. Then the rest of the run was simply perfect.
As student reading.
Lush green reminds me of growing up in northeastern Pennsylvania. And so did these lovely combinations of industrial and wild flowers.
Finally, here’s my favorite photo from today’s run,
That’s a little brick stand-alone sandwich shop called, Homerun Heros (their spelling), with a painting of a train on the side, with the legit railroad crossing sign in front. Plus, I caught my lightning fast daughter in the photo before she disappeared around yet another corner of this most interesting trail run.
Does your city or town have walking, running, or hiking trails? Do you use them? Where you live, is it lush green? Old industrial? Something else? What is the temperature at your place?
Can’t escape the heat 😀 ~~~~~~~~ Angie Mc
