columbia trail

P7010028

last week i met up with my friend kathy, over at the junkdrawblog, her sister and we went for a walk along the columbia trail.  her review of it can be found here (shady trail for walking, but watch for the horse poop!).  i enjoyed the day away from work and it was nice to get out for a walk and relax.  my favorite part of the trail was probably stumbling upon the abandoned building below.  not sure what it used to be, but what a great find.  we ended our tour with ice cream. yum.

  1. Oh Val, you already know how much I love photographs of distressed and decaying buildings, so I LOVED these! I especially love the one of the inside of the abandoned building and the tires. WOW!

    And in that first photo, what is that hanging in the window frame? It looks like a skull with a head wrap on it.

    “we ended our tour with ice cream. yum.”

    Yummy indeed!

    Glad to hear you guys had a great time!

    P.S. Oh, and I loved Kathy’s review, especially the part about the horse droppings 🙂

      me too ron. that was the best find of the day.

      yes, it’s a skull hanging in the window. on our way back i said wouldn’t it be funny if the skull was looking out of a different window. hahahaha.

      the ice cream was delicious. hit. the. spot.

      yeah, we had much to dodge in the way of horse droppings.

        HAHAHAHAHA! Val, you crack me up!

  2. Great photos, Val! I noticed the Columbia Trail reviews mentioned Califon, NJ. My family used to drive through there nearly every Sunday when I was a kid. It’s a beautiful area.

      thanks, rob. yes califon, nj which i read was originally named california, nj, but someone painting the letters on a barn or something ran out of space and the name was shortened to califon. interesting stuff. it’s so not NJ to me, felt like i was in a different state. guess i don’t get out much. 😉

Speak on it!
