GOOD NEWS!!! A few of us ran this morning in Ward Pound Ridge Reservation and were treated to some of the deepest mud that we have ever experienced. The mud is so soft that rocks and boulders previously on the surface have sunk a foot or so into it.
At points along the trails, we sank into it well mid-way to our knees. Water is running everywhere. New streams have sprung up all over the place. In fact, sections of what used to be dry trail are submerged under a foot of water.
We plan on doing the Loop course next Sunday morning. We expect that the swamp along route 124 will be waist deep. And the water crossings, well if you don’t see a posting following our run, you’ll know that we were swept away. We hope to report on the Loop course condition following our run.
