I took two days to recover from the sore butt and Achilles and was headed to Klamath Falls for work brought my running clothes water but forgot my shoes and lunch…waahhhh!!! It was a good excuse to buy some RILEY’S JERKY!
I DID have my hiking boots with me so I headed for the Link River Trail it is 1.5 miles each way so I did get in 3 miles of walking and not on concrete although my feet didn’t feel to great as my boots are a bit tight these days…They were loose when I bought them but gained weight so I may need to get a larger pair! EVERYTHING costs money…..
Oregon Avenue runs across the Klamath Lake outlet
I have never been on this trail before but have made fun of it in the past because it looks from the trail head to basically follow power lines….it does…basically this trail connects Klamath Lake to Lake Ewauna and Veteran’s Park.
My hiking, walking and running always get deterred by things of interest…this must be investigated!!
Can you believe all of these scary spiderwebs….kept me out!!
Oh boy this must be the first dam on the Klamath River….or maybe its just an electric plant…
PARK BENCH FAIL! But I am going to guess that the bench was there first and then the tree grew in front of it!
Finally I have found the trail to Klamath Falls….that which the town is named after
Surely they mean everyone but ME!!
Those are the “falls”…I had heard before that there weren’t really any falls….so I wasn’t disappointed
Back on the River Trail we begin to travel along a perfectly charming irrigation ditch…
The river below…
Now this was exciting….tunnels in the little trees that grow along the river….
very cool the trails go in all directions
Ah Ha….where the children play
It actually has partial walls made of branches
trails that open up to “rooms”
Klamath River was filled with ducks but when I came lumbering along they scattered.
The houses lined along the river
HA!! I went in anyway!!!
The trees are watching….
Hmm…I wonder how you get through this door….
Next time I’ll see where these lead to…
This Oak tree had all sorts of dried whirly-bird things and the wind was blowing and it made a wonderful rasping noise. Speaking of wind it was cold AND windy. My hands were frozen by the time I got back to my car….I encountered a few runners and they all had gloves on their hands!
Of course I just love the “privacy” fence!! wonderful layer of textures…
Hopefully a run tomorrow…..now I am way late getting to bed…but I don’t have to work tomorrow!!
Once again I have photos from a roll of film that are odds and ends from traveling!
