Schuylkill River Runs November 13, 2012

Filed under: Philly — kcfeather @ 12:41 pm

One of the best parts of being unemployed in November is that you can still spend daylight hours in the daylight!

We live just a few blocks from the Schuylkill (that’s “skoo-kill”) River, and the path along the river has become one of our favorite haunts for both running and walking. Even though the temperatures are dropping, I’m still managing to get out for runs pretty frequently.  Full length running tights help.

This morning I thought I’d take you on a little tour of the Schuylkill River Trail (at least the section near our house).  I think you’ll see why we’re so fond of it.

Looking North from South Street onto the Schuylkill River Trail (which runs along the East (righthand) bank of the river), towards the Philadelphia skyline

Looking North from Chestnut Street: Market Street Bridge, 30th Street Station, and the Amtrak Building

Looking South from Vine Street: River Trail on the left; on the right the railroad bridge and the JFK Bridge beyond that

Boathouse Row

Hope you enjoyed the tour. Isn’t it a magnificent trail, to have all these beautiful views within the span of just a few miles?
