2014 ragnar adirondacks, part two.


the adirondacks ragnar might just be the prettiest running course in all the land, i tell you. IN ALL THE LAND. 

this house! the white, with the black shutters?! it's breaking my heart!


& just to make ^all that^ even BETTER (like adding insult to injury, but in a good way) this tree was parked right out front:



we also stumbled upon the most impeccably still field in existence, complete with...

1) this perfectly aged barn framed by those red leaves:




2) those bright, deep green trees in the background:


3) the bluest of skies:


4) a quiet little pond that moonlights as an excellent mirror (look at that reflection!):


(& meanwhile, let's get a slightly closer look at that tree being reflected, shall we?)


5) fog across the street, with the leaves & fields all bright & dewey in the morning:


6) technicolor leaves:


7) & ooh gosh, here's me, looking very rough. it was 6 am & i had run two separate times on two hours of sleep, alright?? :)


we passed this pretty pretty house at one of our exchange points. the ragnar volunteer told us the house had been built in the mid-1800s. no one lives there now, & a few years ago the home was bought by the local bank. it's all quite "a rose for emily," is it not?





more technicolor leaves:




so a river runs through it (& now it behooves me to share this photo, for obvious reasons):



dreamyyyy:


until next time, ragnar adirondacks! (i'm crossing my fingers that there will be a next time :)
