This post is a follow-up from the one done on February 1.
Here are a few more places we visited that day.
Some of you may remember seeing this bridge on this blog before.
I was here in early fall,so it was nice to go back for another visit in winter.
AS I stated before,this used to be a railroad bridge. The tracks have now been removed,but for now at least the structure is still standing.
As we were driving through a valley area,I saw this cliff and asked the driver to stop.
I just want you to know that the picture is straight,but the angle of the hill and all the textures really caught my eye.
As we were stopped I noticed the detail in the side of this hill. You see it is made up of shale,so there are these interesting layers.
Here is a wider view of the cliff.Shale makes all these layers and they become a magnet for a photographer. Isn't that just a unique look?
In the heart of this valley,known around here as Snow Valley,is this old chimney.
I could try to tell you all about it but instead I will share this link which tells it much better than I could.
These articles are not very long and tell the story of a family trying to make a living in this valley.
This is a picture I took from the Internet.I wanted to show at least one picture from an earlier time.
Our forefathers had a much harder life than we do now.The particular family in the above artless are unfamiliar to me,but I find the story worth reading.
