Some subjects for 26 Weeks Letter Challenge: “T” came easy, with a quick search through the database along with some new ‘challenge responses’.
Speaking of Trains and Tracks
You might think that cold, snowy weather is a time to stay indoors with a mug of Hot Chocolate, or a Hot Buttered Rum, or even a cup of hot Tea, but getting outdoors in inclement weather often yields opportunities for great, and sometimes unusual photos.
This was taken in east Baltimore, a little east of the Canton, an newly renovated section of town. The day was cold, we’d had less than an inch of snow which was rapidly melting. A few minutes later I returned to this spot, no snow remained.
Parking in Harpers Ferry, WV is limited, but we were able to nab one of the few remaining spaces for a few minutes to explore around the station. The tracks here are crossing one of two bridges, giving the appearance that half of the Harpers Ferry Tunnel is not used, the other half of the tunnel leads south anong the Shenandoah River towards Winchester, Va. That bridge is a few feet to the right of the one in this photo. Besides more tracks it also has a walkway for bicycles and hikers on the Appalachian Trail. The day we were there it was windy and cold, the river has a thin crust of ice! The The B&O, now the CSX now passes through The Tunnel under Maryland Heights and on through Sandy Hook. video
Enough of trains
On an intersection near home there once grew a couple trees. When they died a local woodcarver went to work. The terrapin of course is the mascot of the University of Maryland – “Go Terps”
Of course “T”
What challenge for the letter “T” would be complete without Tea?
