Today I did one of my favorite things. I went for a trail run, with great people, on a new route and it was SO scenic.
My sister and two of her running friends invited me along on a run and we headed out from the Lodge at Copper Notch and followed the Icicle River for a bit. Then we went up a steep hill to an aqueduct that flows along the hillside.
At first the aqueduct was in a metal 'shell' and since the hill was so steep it was supported by a latticed framework. On top of this framework about two feet above the water was a wood plank walkway for workers. We ran along this walkway and it was amazing to be 1) just a couple of feet above all this rushing water and 2) cruising along this steep hillside with amazing views staring you in the face. If I ever needed a GoPro on a run today was the day.
The walkway ended and then there was a dirt path next to the aqueduct so we ran along that for a few miles and turned around. The return trip along the wood walkway was just as spectacular the second time round.
