It was a fun train ride- felt like it could rock me to sleep...Beautiful day!
Very nice! I love the "radio equipped" shot. :)
Lovely! And I like the picture of the Winking Lizard in Peninsula... the old "Peninsula Nite Club," or whatever it was called. Did you know that there is a downstairs bar there, maybe from prohibition days? They can't have it open anymore, but rumour has it that it exists...(I work near there, and I love to walk the Towpath Trail nearby.)
Looks like soo much fun and been forever since I have been on a train like this!
Megan, it was fun. The rocking made me get motion sickness!Lana- Apparently, that used to be a big deal? The sign really stuck out on the side of this locomotive. Thanks.Black Swamp Girl- Believe it or not, I've never been to the Winking Lizard in Peninsula. Luckily, the lizard has migrated south and I do frequent this very fine establishment in Columbus. And I didn't realize there was a secret bar downstairs. That sounds very cool, and would make a great blog post if you found it!Tom- You should try it out, it was great fun, and an interesting way to watch and photograph nature. There were deer galore, plenty of raptors. The ponds were frozen over so no waterfowl though!Tom
These are great pics, I especially love the ones of the train - great angle! It seems to give an impression of drama, or movement.....David Webb: Photographer
Nice train pictures, great bold colors!
I loved the ride! It was a beautiful sunny day, and the scenery in the park was breathtaking. It was so relaxing. A great way to celebrate our birthdays! I loved it. Especially love the bright , colorful pictures. Great work!mom
Hey, this looks nice! Would love to sit in the train, watch the nice view and enjoy a coffee!
Looks like a great trip - I especially like the 3rd & 5th photos.
Very nice - we did this same trip, in spring, a few years back. I still haven't followed up on my resolve to get back and visit the parks we saw from the train.
Thank You David. For the locomotive pic, I crouched down as far as I could to get this angle and make the train look huge. There is a little kid and his grandpa in the left hand portion of the image. They both look tiny compared to the massive train. Trains are really big and really powerful.Chris- Thank you! The colors really brighten up the blog. This trip wouldn't have been the same if the sun wasn't shining.Mom- (yep this is my real Mom, not some impostor. Her actual name is Carol) Thank you. It was a very good idea that you had!Homeboy- It was a nice little ride. I drank water, but coffee would have been nice as well. There was a snack bar on board.Thanks Adam!Wren, There are some fantastic sites in the Cuyahoga Valley to be seen! I'd love to go back this summer and bike the same route that we took a train ride on this winter day.And to everyone, no one has picked out the heart in the snow picture yet! Tom
I'm so glad you mentioned the heart! I didn't see it either way on the trip, and didn't noticed it in the pictures, either. but since you mentioned it, I went back, and surely there it was! thanks!mom
