The Vasa Pathway is near Traverse City, MI. It's a mish-mash of old logging roads. In the winter the trails are used for cross country skiing. In the summer the trails are used for biking, hiking and running. The trail itself is mostly sand with some areas of gravel or packed dirt. Since it's made up of old logging roads it's mostly two track and wide enough for passing anywhere.
The weather was sunny and 67 degrees with a pretty good breeze blowing. I couldn't tell from which direction. Down in the trees it was swirling a lot. I ended up running 12.4 miles (2 laps of the 10K loop). There were a few respectable hills. I only ended up walking up one of them on the 2nd lap. It was a climb that just went on and on.
I took some pics today. Hope you enjoy them:

|The hill in the distance is bigger than it looks. Whew!|
