These spots are so pretty! I don't have quite the scenic route, but I do have a huge mountain range in the distance to gaze at!

Your pictures make me excited to RUN IN WASHINGTON! I think I will have a bunch of extra time on Monday and will be in Olympia for a little bit of the day- don't know if you're off for the holiday or not but that's one possibility for a run. Can't wait!

I'm so jealous. I did get a run in today, but all I saw was snow and a dead hawk.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful pics.

Oh wow.. That's a beautiful route.. Now I need to see if I can find something like that around here for when I rebuild my mileage.. The Metroparks are great, but I love that bridge..

What beautiful pictures!! Have fun on your run today!

Ewa said...

One can run miles and miles in a place like that. Absolutely beautiful.

Lisa said...

wow. those are gorgeous places to run. I think the best i have around here to run on a regular basis is the reservoir in Central Park. Amazing at sunrise or sunset. Looks like you're in a movie!

Have a great weekend!

Dion said...

I like this idea to post pics of the places I run. May have to borrow the idea.

Heather said...

You have some great routes! Good luck with the million inch run.

marathonmaiden said...

wow that is beautiful! i'm jealous that you get to enjoy that :)

Lisa said...

Beautiful! I definitely need to take more pictures when I run.

I like the idea of running 1,000,000 inches. :-)

Great photos! They look like some great places to run.

Run Strong in your million inches!

What great pictures! It's funny that your post is about taking the scenic route because that's just what I did today. I ran on some trails instead of roads and it was a great run!

I hope your race goes well today! :)

Amanda said...

Beautiful pictures! Hope you had a great time running 1 million inches. I signed up for a trails challenge since we have so many open space parks in my area. I need to pick up my log book so I can get started on logging some scenic runs!

Every time you post pictures you make me more and more jealous of the beauty you get to run in!

Can you tell us where each place is? I did take some pics today. My running friend is very patient with me, as I take off gloves, stop the watch, get the camera out. Repeat!
