I run in North Jersey

And it's not as bad as you'd think!

Steep, rocky descents!

Smooth, soft ribbons of dirt!

Rocky and rooty and yet still soft ribbons of dirt!

Trees!

Obstacles!

Ruins!

More Ruins!

Steep Climbs!

Steep climbs with obstacles!

Steep climbs with obstacles and streams!

Steep climbs short enough to BE obstacles!

Expansive Rock Gardens!

Canopy!


Not pictured: Waterfalls, lakes, cascading rivers, and incredible views of New Jersey suburbs. But who'd want to see New Jersey suburbs anyway??

(All pictures taken on this morning's run and on Sunday's run at Ramapo Reservation in Mahwah, NJ)
