Peter, thank you SO much for visiting! Yes, It's been a good while since I posted new shots, but Spring inspired me to do so! I'm so glad you enjoyed this pretty trail left over from the old railroad tracks. Spring certainly made it into a glorious place! I don't know too much about the area, but walked the trail as far as I could. Eventually it became so grown up that I wasn't able to even find the tracks anymore, but in this particular spot, it was nothing less than perfect! Thank you again for your careful critique, and for just stopping by for a visit. Your words always make me smile. Enjoy your weekend, my friend! :)

Yakupbayram, Thank you so much for your enthusiastic praise! I'm delighted you enjoyed this pretty view, and thank you for visiting my gallery!

Best regards to you both,

Mary Alice

Very nice Mary Alice. We have some very similar trails around here that were reclaimed from rail beds. They make for some pretty easy walking, and can often take you to pretty nice places. This looks like one of them. Like

Best wishes from Canada, Randy

Thank you, Sababoy! I'm so pleased that you enjoyed this place. :)

Randy, Welcome, and thank you for visiting my gallery. How wonderful that you have rails that were converted to actual trails in your area. It the larger cities, there are many of those here in Georgia as well, but this one is actually on a friend of mine's private property. He's just cleared it out for personal use, and I LOVE it there! You're right though.... they always take one through the most beautiful places. I'm so happy that you enjoyed this, and thank you again for stopping by my gallery.
Very best wishes to you from Georgia,

Mary Alice

Hi there MAry Alice :-) When I saw this pop up again, it made me think of our own revitalised old railway lines here in the UK...

If you have time, check this out... It is one of a set taken on an old line was taken out of service in the 1970's...

I hope you are keeping well...
