This past May we had visited a family cemetery for Memorial Day and explored the surrounding countryside. The railroad tracks you see are long abandoned. The trains would have been carrying coal from mines down to the Elk River near Charleston, West Virginia where it could be transported. Did you notice the tree now growing in the middle of the tracks? Down to the right of the tracks are some cows enjoying the shade as you can see in this next photo.
Getting closer I snapped a shot of this cow bedded down in among the trees. It was almost as if she had fenced herself in!
At the left of the photo you can see the bend of the road where we would leave the tracks behind as they continued on through the woods to nowhere. This is the same area I took some Watery Wednesday pics posted here.
I hope Becky from Twisted Fenceposts is reading this today. I 'met' Becky just recently in blogland and she grew up here in West Virginia near where I took these photos. She has a 'history' with cows so I hope she gets a laugh seeing this one. Becky is now in South Carolina and has a good sense of humor so check out her blog when you have some time.
