Challenge Double Shot — Which Way/Outdoors – #RTCOpeningDay

Today’s the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy‘s Opening Day for Trails, and I pledged to go out and walk a part of the Hockhocking Adena Bikeway in my hometown of Nelsonville, OH. And since I was taking pictures, I figured I’d use the opportunity to send submissions for this week’s Which Way Challenge and Travel Theme.

It was pretty chilly for the last Saturday of March (mid-30s) so I basically had the bikepath all to myself (only saw one other person). I didn’t walk the entire trail, just from the Rocky Brands Outlet Store to Polley Field. Upside: it was a nice sunny day out. 🙂

And here’s some bonus shots for the Which Way:

Share and enjoy. 🙂 Leave comments!

Travel Theme — Details

It’s time for a new Travel Theme, and this week, it’s all about the details.

Once again, we’re visiting a familiar picture-taking spot, the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway.

A close-up look at one of the wheelsets of a passenger car. My, there's a lot of parts there. ^_^

FFC Part 2 — More Wheels (And Other Stuff) On The HSVR

It was a pretty nice day yesterday, so I decided go on a walkabout. My wanderings led to a familiar spot: the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway. Being the mild railfan I am, I decided to take some pics.

FFC — Wheels on the Cabooose Train

Today’s the last day for this week’s Fun Foto Challenge, so I’d better get to work! 😉

A little over a week ago, the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway had the Caboose Train, which is exactly what it sounds like. 🙂 I took some photos with my phone, so here ya go! 😉

Which Way Challenge 9 — Take Deux

Yes, I know I already did a WWC entry, but while I was going to my local GoMart store yesterday, I felt compelled to take some shots of the HVSR crossing over Lake Hope Drive where the store’s located.

A word of caution: Only take pictures of railroad facilities when you’re sure there’s no train coming.

On the left past the bridge is the local VFW post. On the right is the city offices building.

Which Way Challenge 9

This entry for the new Which Way Challenge starts at the Good Works Hannah House property on the outskirts of Athens, OH. On Fridays a supper is held on the property.

This grassy path leads to an open area where we have bonfires sometimes.

Then today I took some shots near the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway station (the subject of an earlier post).
