The run was probably the best part of my trip. I haven't been to Havasu since I was pretty young. having just spent some time in London, I was excited to get back out to the lake and see the London Bridge. it is a very beautiful spot. Very scenic, and luckily, I only caught the tail end of some of the residual spring breakers (no pun intended).
I started off at my hotel and ran toward the bridge. One you pass the casino, there is a nice stairway that leads you up to the bridge. At the top you get a pretty nice view of the channel. Here is a shot of where I am just about to start to enter the bridge.
There is a great little pathway that runs along the waterfront. It wasn't too crowded this day, so made for easy running.
As you run along the channel you see all kinds of fun things. This day I caught a few of the left overs from spring break.
I am now going northbound back toward the bridge. Once you pass the party boats, you get your first glimpse back at the bridge.
There are a few street vendors selling glow sticks, beer, and souvenirs. Lots of boat and wave runner rentals are found along this path as well. As you pass all of that you actually get to the bridge. Here is a look up at the bridge from down below.
As you continue north past the bridge, you eventually come to the end of the pathway. From here it turns to sand. A good little leg workout ensued from here for a bit.
The smallmouth bass fishing is said to be excellent, and i did nail this little guy on my first cast.
All in all it was a lot of fun. Some great exposure for Okuma and Savage Gear, fish were caught, and a great run was had.
Happy Running...and Fishing!!
