The Ground Speaks

Recently I was at one of my favourite spots for walking and picture-taking. I ended up walking at the site of some old railroad tracks. They are over 100 years old.

I wonder if they make railroad ties out of the same material now as they did back then. These are showing their age.

When I got close, I was surprised at the red hues in the wood.

My husband tells me that one time trains ran through this area quite frequently. Not anymore. I hope these pieces of the past remain here, undisturbed.
