Old Railroad Bridge Park

My daughter and I went for a walk after school on Monday. We walked from my school to the park and back. It's about 4 miles round trip. As you can tell it was a beautiful afternoon.

This is an old railroad trestle that goes over the Dungeness River.
Bird feeder near the education center.
Making our way back across the bridge.
The Dungeness River with the Olympic Mountains in the background.
A little background on this picture. When my daughter was about two it would take us what felt like two hours to go about two feet.  This is because she had to stop and pick up every rock that struck her fancy.  When I say every rock, I mean all her pockets would be full and so would mine. She is now 12 years old and guess what, she still collects rocks. Lucky she is more selective.
On our way back we found this oddity. That is 11 flowers on one stem.
 Please stop by these other blogs I am linked to:


  1. Beautiful photos. Love the framed mountain shot. We barely have buds on the trees here. Yours are ahead of ours.

  2. Fantastic photos -- what a beautiful place to have so close to home.

  3. Enjoyed your lovely walk!
    Have a wonderful day!

  4. Wow! ~ Great photography ~ love the bridge ~ great post ~ ^_^

  5. I love bridges like that, so much character. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Lovely mother-daughter sharing time. I love the pictures and the memories they bring of the beautiful Pacific Northwest (we lived in the Eugene Oregon area for years and years and still spend summers there). But I miss spring. The tradeoff for having no chilly rainy winter here in Florida is not having beautiful early spring re-birth! (It's really only fair!)

    1. I think I could live with that tradeoff. I love Florida and its heat. I would move there if I could get my husband and kids to agree. Saddly they think it is too hot. Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Very nice images, Shannon. I remember an old railroad trestle that we used to run across when I was young. My husband also used to live in Washington State ... glad he came back to Indiana, though ... doubt I would have met him otherwise! :) Sure wouldn't mind moving up that way ... it's such a beautiful area! My first visit from Tuesday Muse.

  8. Looks like a beautiful route for a sunny walk


  9. Wonderful walk, love the bridge photo
