The Railroad Not Taken

bike route 015It was not hard to make myself get on my bike today because I’d seen something yesterday that I really wanted to photograph.  Since morning glories, which are the flowers  covering the sign below, are most glorious in the morning, I was on my bike as soon as the children were off to school.   To me, this looks like something right out of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe.  This sign stands next to abandoned tracks that run through my neighborhood.   There is some talk of creating a Rails to Trails bike trail along these tracks.  The Hot Pink Bike Route would love to see these tracks used that way.  Oh the places we could go!

    This is a great post. I think both pictures are great – the small one is the most evocative! I really do wish they would put a trail there…
