indian creek trestle

with the impending release of
the tall trees and boardwalk railroad route,
 this spring/summer,
i thought it would be a good time to do one last set of screens.
since this is primarily a scenic railroad,
many of the shots are of a scenic nature.
click the thumbnails to enlarge.
 x to close or drag box to edge of screen and 'drop' it!
