Winter On The Salmon Creek
It snowed off and on all day today. After lunch I went down to one of my favorite places. I walked down by the mouth of the Salmon Creek, where it empties into Cayuga Lake. As it was snowing heavily, light filtered down through the mist of snow to the southwest and lit the sky. As the snow lightened I waded in the middle of the creek when I heard a steady ta-dump, ta-dump, ta-dump behind me. I turned to see a train approaching the old trestle bridge. I took the picture below of the train on the bridge while standing waist deep in the middle of the rushing creek!
