Cliff Running Along Newport's Cottages

A morning appointment in Newport, Rhode Island today meant that this morning's run was spent on Newport's famous Cliff Walk, a National Recreation Trail that winds its way between waves crashing along rocky cliffs on one side, and the "cottages" of Newport's Gilded Age on the other.

I snapped a few photos along the way; enjoy!

 Some of the walkways are fenced in...some of them with pretty steep dropoffs.
