All the ups and downs

My son loaned me his lovey for our run-- as long as I didn't get him stinky.

Thought I'd have a little fun and make us hit lots of the trails between Wildwood and Leif. My first iteration was only 20 miles, and by the time I got that far into route-making I just used the easiest method of adding on. So there's a longer stretch on Wildwood from Nature Trail to Ridge. The multiple, short climbs break things up nicely.

Firelane 4 is difficult to run even downhill, so might as well go up it.
I knew the hike up Firelane 4 would be overgrown, but I didn't realize there'd be stinging nettles there, too. Now that's incentive to get up a hill quickly!

Moss creeping in on Firelane 3.
