Traveling Fun Run #5
Valley Forge Park from Betzwood picnic area. Dan took us in a 5 mile trail tour across the river, along 422, up and down, across a train track (startled by a speeding freight train), and side to side in the very humid pre-Hurricane Hanna early run. We then toured the flat wide trail along the river with the 8:30 arrivals. Beautiful trails, a few rain sprinkles, good post-run food and coffee, and typical AARC fun and camaraderie. Photo.
