Walk on the Palisades

December 15, 2005 - I know I posted one from this series before. It was a couple weeks after a snowfall and rain was forecast, so I went out to shoot snow before it all got washed away.

I see dead trees. They're everywhere.

Even after growing up in this area and feeling like I've explored everywhere available to be explored, I think I'm just finding the extent of the hiking trails that run along the Palisades. I'm discovering trails that I never knew existed, or had found and forgot them before I had a chance to further explore them enough to remember them. Really, there's not much to explore or remember, which might explain things, but I want to before I leave here again. I think the signs are relatively new. The paint on the trees are old, used to mark trails. Our track team had permission (maybe) to mark running courses, and our marks were sky blue. That's the Palisades Parkway in the background.

Don't they?! When I scanned the roll, I was "eh" about them, but upon closer viewing, they're pretty neat!

That's a beautiful shot of the dead trees, I agree. Lovely.

Thanks, we should all be so lovely in death.
