This blog highlights some of my adventures with the focus on railroad history. Originally intended as a blog of my rail trail rides, it now also includes hikes, railroad trips and even stop-and-go car trips if they are railroad history related...

Hangin' out with the Deer

November 1st
I took a day off on Friday and after, dusting off the trombone and practicing a bit. I decided to take a ride around the neighborhood, It was overcast and crappy but at least there wasn't any rain.

I rode down to thru Darien on Rt 106, stopping park a small park off Heather Lane. I noticed this crazy tree that, despite being chopped down and tossed horizontally on the  ground, it just kept growing! Ah the resilience of trees!  :-)

Close Encounters

I then went on to Glenbrook and came back up thru the industrial park. I stopped for second by the river and 4 deer were calmly nibbling on leaves near the water's edge. We stood there staring at each other for some time and I was able to snap a few photos. (It was an overcast day so the snapshots are somewhat dull...)
