Along the Goshen Trail bike/walking path, there's an old water tower. The kind of water tower that would've been used to support steam locomotives, back when they ruled the rails. The tower was probably retired by the late 50's or early 60's. The rails have been gone since (probably) the 1990s. A cool old structure, but nestled back in trees and overgrowth. Only 1/3 of a mile from the nearest parking, a nice afternoon excursion, although I was racing against the setting sun. A managed a handful of images I'm happy with, but this one really captured my fancy.
