Roman Aqueduct

Back to Segovia, Spain for a picture of a truly ancient human accomplishment. This is the Roman Aqueduct built by those Romans 2000 years ago. Built without mortar it is still an engineering achievement. (Note the size by the people along the base.)

Eagle Stare Down

We were across the Creek from each other along the Pine Creek Rail Trail. He kept a close eye on me. I took pictures. He won the stare-down- I left first.

Wilderness No Parking

At a campsite along the Pine Creek Rail Trail, I couldn't resist the semi-irony in the signs and setting. Well, at least I found it interesting.

Miller Park- Line and Lines

A break from the Pine Creek pictures. This goes under my photographic love of lines and curves- and of baseball. Miller Park in Milwaukee.

A Run Out of the Hill

I believe this is Pine Island Run. There weren't a lot of these runs with very much water at this time of the year.

Old Railroad Bridge

The bridge over Pine Creek near Cedar Run, PA. What makes these bridges so interesting is the angle of the beams compared to the bikeway. That is because the beams are set more parallel to the creek bed.

After the hundreds of shades of green, yellow-gold may be the most common color this time of year along the Pine Creek Rail Trail.

This Weekend

Jun10 01 007
The west side of Pine Creek nearing its end. The Bald Eagle Mountain is seen in the distance at the "gap" where the Creek enters the Susquehanna. This is where I will be at the end of my 60 miles for age 60 on Monday afternoon.
