Two pictures from yesterdays trip over an old railway (Sala to Gysinge in Sweden). The most... well... exciting part was crossing three bridges, build 1900, who had no planks on the top. So there are 20cm gaps at some spots between the wood. Just keep some speed and it works well! I wanted to keep in the middle, because if you take the side panels and then loose control, it's a 5m fall down into the water.




The sign says that the bridge is not build for pedestrians and that it lacks side rails and that you cross it on your own risk - it doesn't say anything about motorcyles...! If there were any signs banning motorized traffic I must have missed them. Nobody around anyway, at that time of the year.

Here are two photos southern Arizona landmarks from yesterday. The cattle skull building is a restaurant and is now closed. The next time I go by there it'll probably be torn down. The other building is the San Xavier mission.

"The Ruins" Located in Holliday Park, Indianapolis, IN. ( 39°52'15.27" N 86°09'48.32" W )




Quote from: http://www.hollidaypark.org/about-hp.html

"In the 1950s, the St. Paul Building, at 220 Broadway in New York City, was torn down to make way for a modern skyscraper. Karl Bitter, one of the outstanding architectural sculptors of the late 19th century, had designed the facade of the original building, including three massive statues made of Indiana limestone called “the Races of Man.” To find a new home for the sculptures, the building’s owner, the Western Electric Company, held a competition among U.S. cities, which were required to submit plans for their display and preservation. Indianapolis proposed to place them in Holliday Park, which was then an arboretum, and the city was ultimately awarded the highly prized sculptures, valued at the time at $150,000.

Elmer Taflinger, who provided the sketches for the proposed structure, was chosen to carry out the design. He worked to complete the project over the next 20 years."

^^^ That's how you post a picture! ^^^^

Not only give the location (and coordinates) but a description as well. Nicely done!

(Most of the time I have a hard time trying to figure out what continent some of these pictures are from when there's no text/description. "Is that the Australian Outback or the Southwestern USA???")

The end of an era

Monday was a sad day as a crew of amish men came and disassembled my grandpa's barn. He stopped farming in 99 and the barn fell into direpair. It was getting close to falling down so wrather than see that happen he had it taken down.

The farm was purchased by my great-grandfather sometime in the early 20's. Grandpa figures the the oldest part of the barn (right where it meets the hill) dates back about 150 years. Those large beams were hand cut and had the marks to show it.

Sad to see it go considering all the memories it's associated with. Used to be a lot of fun swinging from the big rope that hung in the hay mow.



Here's a before shot.
