Ed, Rich and I met up for a short 5 mile trail run this morning. We took off just before 6AM to run a trail loop Richard had worked out around the Railroad Bed Trail on Monte Sano Mountain. During the entire run, all of us continued to wonder how in the world an actual train has used these now extremely rugged trails to transport people and goods up and down the mountain. I had a hard time imagining mules pulling wagons along these trails, let alone an actual locomotive. Unless I see actual footage of this train, I continue to be suspicious;-) We ended up having a very fun, very slippery run with mild temps in the low 60s. Thankfully, we didn't have to deal with any additional rain during our run.
