trail running 1:37:15 [3]

In Colrain from Chandler Cemetery north to Franklin Hill and back, 50:52 going out, 46:23 back when I had a better sense of what lay ahead.
First time I'd been here. I'd been told there was a nice trail along the ridge, so I took a copy of the topo map and had fun "mapping" the trail as I ran along. Part of the challenge was keeping track of where I was, the other part was remembering until I got home and could mark the route on the orginal. I think I got it pretty accurate.
What was weird was the map shows a lot of open land, while in fact there were only a few little bits, And many of the places shown as open are now nice forest. Not old forest, you can see the occasional old maple that grew up when it was fields, but nice runnable forest despite its youth. May have to head up there again just to do some (hilly) woods running. By the way, the date on the map is 1961, with "topography by planetable surveys 1937 and 1944." The contours were just fine!
