The James River Park System includes land surrounding the James up and down Richmond, and one of the neat things about it (there are many) is the elaborate trail system along the river. You can really get lost in the wilderness while you’re on those trails, which is incredible when you consider that you’re in a pretty urbanized city. It’s remarkable. I went on a trail run in April and took these pictures from that trip. As you can see, there are parts that are along roads — case in point, the picture of the bridge (The Boulevard Bridge), which extends over the James River and connects north and south. The bridge is pretty old, and you can picture it standing in the early 1900s, when it was actually completed (it was finished in 1925).
