Hickory Run SP. Rerun of the Blue Middle Distance course from the 2008 Team Trials (I first ran it in August of this year, not in 2008). No flags or streamers, just UsynligO. 4.8k straight line. Much better run this time with 3 small misses (compared with 3 big misses last time, all on different controls). About 30 minutes faster today. Even as a rerun, this was still pretty challenging since the in-your-face beech saplings still have green leaves on them so visibility is limited. Bobbled 5 a little bit and then the tune didn’t play the first time I was at the feature (or close enough that I would’ve seen a flag). Off on 6 but relocated reading features. Great weather - 60s and sunny.

On the D & L Trail in Lehigh Gorge SP starting (and finishing) at the Tannery parking area. Went south to a bit beyond where Mud Run empties into the Lehigh. Checked out remnants of a couple of impressive locks (28’ lift, all stonework with no mortar, designed to fill or empty in < 3 minutes, built ~1840). Gorgeous day - sunny, low 60s and lots of Fall color.
