Nature for TT

Textured with rainy day for sharing with Texture Tuesday.  Frame I used is compliments of Rita at The Coffee Shop Blog

They have created a walking path along what use to be railroad tracks that went through our town. The walking path begins at the edge of our town and has been transformed into a Nature Preserve as well. Once it is completed, the walking path will continue to the next small town (if you’re able since it is about 7-10 miles).

The railroad has long ago been taken away, but sometimes you can see what remains of the bed and some ties remain. There are birdhouses that have been constructed along the way, and this little fellow was flying in to deliver feeding time to its babies.

Also, along our walk we saw many pretty flowers among the weeds. Below are just a few.




What’s left of one of the railroad bridges.

Hope you will venture over to see what others are sharing for the Nature Texture Tuesday.

Enjoy!! and thanks so much for visiting me. I love comments and do read them all so please drop a word or two so I know you were here. Thanks.

Among the Weeds

We have a new trail the parks department is blazing through several counties where I live. Eventually when it’s done it will be 12 miles long (and more later on down the road). Right now they only have a few miles done. My sister and I walked the first mile of it and back so we ended up doing a 2 mile leisure stroll (that’s good for us since I haven’t done my walking lately).

Actually, you’re walking along what use to be what’s left of a railroad bed with the tracks removed, but you can still see some of the wooden planks. The path is mostly just wild vegetation growing on it’s own. We didn’t see much nature…only a few butterflies and some birds. They had put some bird houses along the trail.

Here is a picture from our walk.



This is one of the old railroad bridges where the train would have crossed the stream/river. (they’ve build new cement bridges that we now can walk across the water/stream)
