Based on my exploratory run back on the 6th of January, I had a new route in mind that would allow me to stay in the Jungle a fair bit longer than other trails. Effectively running down the hill via one jungle trail and back up a separate one.
So I headed out along the road and as I reached the turn off for the jungle trail, I spotted this little guy sitting in a gutter!
Close up of his head. This little guy was more than happy to pose for a few snaps before heading back into the scrub
On the trail that heads down the slope
Wicker chairs that had been dragged up into the jungle and placed about halfway up this concrete watercourse I run down
A tangle of roots and bright midday sun
My route went up past this little shrine that was gradually being engulfed by the tree
Beside a boulder strewn watercourse
Out in the sun and working hard up the hills
A strange flower at some hobbyists illegal jungle retreat
Quite a good run and a route I'll be happy to run again, even if the uphill sections along the trails are killer tough.
See you out on the trails
