One of the most beautiful autumn pictures I’ve ever seen. Stunning.
Upstate, NY is another world; so beautiful year-round with room to breathe!
Canandaigua has been the outlier for this region, it’s grown quite a lot, but a mile down this trail and you’re back to farms and wood lots. Glad you are enjoying the photos!
I agree fully with Jan Theobald: a stunning autumn picture. Looks like those rail trails we did lately.
Have a great week,
Hi Pit – I thought of that, I would have recommended this for your railtrail project, but kind of a long drive from Texas! Thank you & glad you like the picture.
Well, I’ll put that trail on our bucket list. This years trip, that took us all the way up to southern Nebraska was that enjoyable that we’re surely planning more. And heading more to the east is one of the options.
Just beautiful – nothing quite like walking through woods in Autumn. 🙂
It is beautiful. I’m trying to envision it… Was it narrow gauge, or have they allowed the woods to grow up next to where the tracks would have been? I can’t quite imagine a train going through there, although it may be wider than it appears. I try so hard not to be envious of northern fall colors, but it does test me from time to time.
I think it was a full-size track, because they used to haul anthracite from Pennsylvania through here up to Lake Ontario — it’s just had 40 or 50 years to get overgrown.
I know the RR was still in business in 1964, because that’s when two locomotives ran into each other, a couple of miles north. There’s still pieces of metal and stuff in the woods
The reds and browns look beautiful. It’s such a pretty season of the year.
