W&OD Trail Pictures

Well, I figured if I was going to remember where Brian and I trained so hard for our marathons I better bring a camera on one of these trips! This weekend I actually remembered! LOL! This is a trail now but it used to be a route for trains! It's a great place to run, bike or whatever exercising strikes your fancy! We see them all out there! It goes for miles and miles but we only use a short portion of it, well, Brian uses more! LOL! They have restroom and water stops along the way too which is great as they always seem to be in the right spot at the right time if you know what I mean! LOL! The scenery is fantastic with the animals - deer, rabbits, birds and the plants and flowers are just so lush! Here are the pictures to show you some of it!

The sign you can see off of Hwy 28 (other side of Dulles IAP believe it or not!)

This was taken heading up to the trail. Lots of electrical lines but it makes for great radio reception on your Ipod!

Great scenery- oops I mean my DH coming up the trail after a 12 mile run!

No really - great scenery like this on the sides of the trail! Aren't they beautiful?!

More great scenery (my DH!) and coming down off the trail in the other direction from which we run! This is the bridge over Hwy 28.

Now when we move to Ohio I sure hope we find somewhere just as nice to run! There's no worries here cars, people just an occasional biker who tries to see how close they can come to you before moving to the left!

Until next time....................

wow, looks like a beautiful place to connect with nature while you're doing something healthy. Awesome. And I'm sure you'll find something in Ohio, it just may take a bit to find just the "right" spot. Best of luck!
