Houston Area Trail Runners get an opportunity every day to run at the infamous Ho Chi Minh Trail Trails on a daily basis. Over the past month I have been using a Rola-tape Measuring Wheel to measure the real distance along the Ho Chi Ming Trails.
The process took over 20 hours which most of it I accomplished early morning from 3a-7a before runners, bikers or people were on the trails so that I did not have to stray of course too much. Along the way of doing all this I was thinking of how truly nice it was to have this place to run. I mean we are in Houston, Texas famous for so many great attractions, events and buildings all around us. But in this small pocket in our city amongst all the traffic, cement and craziness lies a diamond in the rough. A place that is still inhabited my rabbits, coyotes and natures natural animals. I have always seemed to look at the trail as a human being and therefore a living being. When you look at something with human eyes you tend to treat it as such. So as I spent time walking these trails I had the opportunity to see the small things that I miss when running and flying through the trails. As daylight came up I had decided to take some pictures with my camera which I have never done. I am posting these as a hope to show you the trails that are near to my heart and that we have hear in Houston.
