The views from this trail are breath-taking, but my pix were less so. Obviously, I tinkered with this one.
So, I consulted my geocache app to see what kind of caches were nearby, and noticed I was not far from Goose Island. I used to fish a lot at Oologah, but had never been there. I'm really not sure why I never checked it out?
There were no caches hidden here, but I thought it might be a good place to squeeze a run in.
I got there just as the sun was setting, and my trusty headlamp was at home. I snapped a couple of pics and headed out running.
There are a few miles of dirt roads accommodating hunters. Most are straight and boring, but as they near the shores, they wind around and the lakeside views are stunning! I ran through the woods, crashed through some briers, ran a little on the dirt roads, and then about a half mile on the rocky shores of the lake. Hopping and scrambling over rocks was a super workout.
I ran 1.5 miles and it was starting to get a little too dark to glide over the rocks. Wish I had more time. I am definitely going back soon to run the entire perimeter of the island, but I have a feeling that it better not be during hunting season.
