Ran up a gas pipeline trail

IMG_1729The mountain I ran today had a nice well-used trail, and then a small path that went straight up the mountain. I had to know where it went and it seemed to go a ways on Google Maps.

I took it past an old graveyard with two or three headstones, one from someone who died at 21 years of age in 1869. Wow.

Then straight up the mountain. And I mean relentlessly straight up. It was brutal. 1.3 miles in, just as it started to get interesting, I hit private property and had to turn around. What was that about?

The run up was cloudy and grey (below). Then the sun came out and the clouds/fog scattered (above).

Word of advice, run trails. Not paths made for gas pipeline layers.
