Langus Riverfront Park opens at 6am year round, and it's one place I don't worry about at all when it's dark out. It's just too far away and there's no way to get there without a car, so it's usually quite empty.
I took quite a few more pictures today than I included here. Click the map below and scroll back through the photostream if you want to see them all.

That is one of my favorite destinations even though there's no climbing involved. One drawback is that the water treatment plant there occasionally stinks, and today was one of those days. I think I saw more people there than ever today, too. A guy in rubber boots climbed up onto the trail from the water at one point, some guys drove in while I was on the access road, and a couple of women pulled into the island's parking area, which I noticed for the first time today. I'd seen cars parked there, but I thought it was part of the facility. I still prefer parking over by the river, it's easier to time it from there so that I see the sunrise from the best spots. I might start parking a little further North, though, so I can try to get five miles and 10,000 steps.
