Beaver Creek – Winter’s View

A view from Spruce Saddle at Beaver, Creek Colorado.

The top of lift 6, the Centennial lift, presents some spectacular views. This image looks out to the North East towards Vail, Colorado. A couple of the trails at Vail, appear in this image.

Ski trails above Spruce Saddle are mostly green.

Spruce Saddle is the bottom of lift 8, the Cinch lift which takes the skier up to the top of Beaver Creek Mountain.

Altitude at the top of lift 8 is about 11,400 feet.

Spending a day at Beaver Creek is a wonderful way to Ski!

NCR Trail – Whistle Post

On Wednesday August 20, 2014, I took a walk on the NCR Trail

starting in Railroad, Pennsylvania. Railroad is at the 3 mile marker. There were a few cars in the parking lot off of Pa Route 851 when I arrived. Another car was parking just after I got there. I started out at about 12:30 pm and proceeded downhill (North) towards Glen Rock.

The image included here was taken at about the 3.75 mile marker. The Camera was still in Expressive mode from the night before. This is the reason for the bright greens.

The whistle sign is the warning for the Taylor Hill Road Crossing a little further down hill. The Federal Railroad Administration has rules (June 2005) for the train whistle operation.

The train passed me coming up hill at about the 4.25 mile marker.

The trail was busy for a Wednesday! Plenty of walkers, and bicyclists. No equine travelers.

I turned around at the 4.5 mile marker and returned to my car with a 3 mile round-trip walk for the day.
