I like Ohio. It's fun living here. I'm not sure I'd want to be a permanent resident of the state, but it has been good to us and we're looking forward to our year here.
One thing Ohio has to offer is plenty of trails where there used to be railroads. This series of pictures was taken (by cell phone) in Howard on a small section of the Kokosing Gap Trail.
The main road runs right over the trail on this pretty bridge, but on the road you'd never know it!
I love the age of the blocks, the coloring the years have given it.
I haven't done any research if this section of former track would be old enough, but can you just imagine riding the huge steam train through Ohio, back when it was the west?
Confession: This second batch of pictures was taken (also by cell phone) just a couple weeks after the first batch. Ohio really greened up! I didn't really need to take more pictures but I couldn't help myself. Now I need to go back with a real camera.... and a picnic lunch!
I must have a thing for picnic tables. Care to join me?
