My love note:  My favorite spot in Philadelphia is this inconspicuous trail just west of the Strawberry Mansion Bridge. There is no better way for me to unwind after a long day than with an evening run, right before sunset, over the Strawberry Mansion Bridge and into the woods of Fairmount Park. As you go further down the trail the car noise subsides and you can forget that you are surrounded by the sixth largest city in the country on all sides. It’s a surreal experience that is unmatched by any other urban park in the country. To me, it’s a hidden gem in a city with many of them.
