Here and There

Today was errands day, and I kept my eye out for interesting things while I was out running them. Tomorrow I'll have some more Nature shots as I'll have the day free and it'll be snowing again. I love taking shots in the snow!

I've been meaning to get a shot of this shed window on Lutz Ave. for a while. I finally got around to it.

This car on Fort Rd. obviously hasn't been moved in a while

This window on Burd St. is still decorated for Winter

From This Morning's Walk

On the way to the grocery store again this morning; here are the things that caught my attention as I walked through the Dykeman Spring Nature Park.

Out For a Walk

It was a very cold day today; I even needed earmuffs! So today's walk to the grocery store was a brisk one, but I did manage to get a few shots that caught my eye on the way. Enjoy!

On the Tracks Again

The railroad tracks going through Shippensburg follow two routes that merge (or split, depending on which way you're heading) at the Queen St./Baltimore Rd. overpass. I'm pretty sure the tracks that run about two blocks behind my house aren't used any more; I've never seen a train on them. It's these tracks that I follow out into the country to the Mennonite bulk foods store on Rowe Rd., and it's these that I followed in the opposite direction today to head for my regular grocery store. As you can see from the photos, we still have some snow hanging around. And alas, no train passed this time.
