Rails from the old Everett & Monte Cristo Railway are buried under the old road that has become the trail.

la nature a repris ses droits !

I love this type of shot where we see the built environment meeting nature - or in this case nature in the process of reclaiming the site. Neat angle along the rails to follow the trail.

How about that -- a little of Nature's own archeology. Looks like a beautiful trail.

Gorgeous perspective. Rails under a road that is now a nature trail - fascinating!

A fantastic place to hike and it has history too! I like the framing, but I wont take the invitation to balance on these tracks to get to the other side ;)

Wonderful shot.. some history behind this nature trail..
29 Oct 2010 8:16am
It is obviously now part of nature...
29 Oct 2010 8:34am
very nice walk (path) now
29 Oct 2010 9:25am
Very interesting :) Great light in back, too.

These exposed rails makes a fine shot to go with information about the trail. I like the general view of the river and the setting too. Nice shot.

told you it was a railroad.

That is amazing....and all has washed away except for the rails which were there "first". This is great Steve! Thank you...Really interesting!
29 Oct 2010 12:43pm
That's so cool...I can only image what this must have been like long ago. Nice!

Very interesting shot, it means the cost of recovery of the rails was higher than the financial value...
29 Oct 2010 2:12pm
don't put a train on them - very nice view
29 Oct 2010 2:50pm
Beautiful composition and very interesting! WOW! No rails anymore! This is amazing! This is like when we went hiking in the Maine wilderness and found the 100 year or more logging trains left in the woods! You could still smell the coal!!!!
29 Oct 2010 3:07pm
I am sorry, I meant no anything, except for the rails! It is an interesting find!!!!
29 Oct 2010 3:14pm
love your POV; hows the rails lead me to the path, and then i look at other paths like the blue stream and small rapids
29 Oct 2010 4:00pm
Just love that blue...a lovely shot Steve!
29 Oct 2010 5:31pm
Rails of a different era and so tiny in this magnificent landscape (surely) and tormented. The walk had to be seen sporting the remaining path ;)
29 Oct 2010 5:49pm
Excellent shot! Wonderful composition with the rails in front...
Love the colours and lighting...
29 Oct 2010 6:11pm
very cool. i haven't seen anything quite like that
29 Oct 2010 6:12pm
Great find, Steve! It's nice to sit on the old rails and enjoy the sun and view..;-)
29 Oct 2010 7:31pm
very nice place for holidays :)

WoW! Great shot, reminds me of living up in Northern Nevada and visiting all the old ghost towns and mi9ning camps, which I had been into pictures in those days!
29 Oct 2010 11:21pm
That is anice place... unspoiled !

Pretty cool to see a glimpse of history like that, a nice shot too, but Daniel has a nice river ;)
30 Oct 2010 1:52am
@Michael: This is the South Fork Sauk River. His shot is further downstream.
aha,very nicely discovered,lovely compo,contrast also.
take care,my friend:)

A great composition of textures, light and depth. I like how the tops of the evergreens are captured, extending above the shadow cast by the hillside. An unusual find of rails "floating" without the railroad ties beneath.
30 Oct 2010 3:03am
What an interesting find and you have captured it very well. I like the textures and composition
30 Oct 2010 3:53am
wow, an incredible find and photo of history unearthed!
31 Oct 2010 12:58am
Wow, great spotting this. Love those deep colors!
