This series of 10 photos were taken on Feb 27 2000. *** Note *** It is neither legal nor advisable to "walk the tracks". Unwary animals have been struck and killed by passing trains. Although it may be difficult to fully assess the impact of the railroad's presence, it is a fact that must be lived with. The Lower Road runs parallel to the tracks and is the preferred path, although it is usually muddy and puddle ridden.
