Since I enjoy both of them so much, it seems natural they should be combined. Early photos were taken by my son Jesse. When he moved out on his own, I continued shooting with my iPhone and Bluetooth remote trigger. Early morning is my best time. From home there are multiple routes possible, both on the roads and through the trails, sometimes combining both. The CT Salmon River State Forest is 1/4 mile away, it’s a labyrinth of trails with interesting terrain made and used by mountain bikers. Rarely do I hop in the car and go elsewhere. Three reasons for running: fitness, enjoyment, and relaxation. It also reminds me of when running was so much fun as a kid! It doesn’t get any better than that.
