Down To The Wire
The grove sits beside some abandoned railroad tracks. They are being turned into a bike trail that will go for about 20 miles or so. I'm looking forward to it, but I'm also a little worried. Right now there's a sort of wildness about it. Things wander in and make it a home, like that little palm in the Palm Trio the other day and lots of other scrubs and wildflowers. And of course, all the birds. In some places, I see rabbits and squirrels. I've even run into a coyote or two while running as the sun rises. I just wonder if once the bike path is in it will be more sterile and planned. They are already working on a section a mile from my house so it will be nearing my patch soon enough. But change is good right? The cyclist in me is even loking forward to it and the hope that more people will use it.
Anyway, you can still find elements of the railroad here and there - the rails, the tracks. These wires rusting in the sun. But it won't be much longer. It's getting down to the wire.
P.S. I used the orton effect on #2.
