The other day Kathy, Molly and I decided to take a ride to Oxford, to an old used bookstore just south of town. It has been a couple years since I was there. I met the author, Mark Bowden (Black Hawk Down) the last time I visited. The place has changed since then, but still nice. (Anywhere that sells old books is nice!) We left there and roamed around town some. Being a Sunday, most shops were closed.
The old train station now converted into Borough Hall?
Molly smells food and is wondering where the gravy train is (Sorry Molly, Purina does not make Gravy Train!)
Niblock Alley train over-pass.
We left Oxford and decided to head to Stafford on the Susquehanna Trail. This was a nice 4-1/2 mile hike. Unfortunately – no Fall Foliage.
Uncertain of which way to go…back into the woods then.
Not sure the purpose of this fence, but I like it.
The path is over old train tracks. These tracks were put here when the Conowingo Dam was built. Carried supplies and men to and from town.
The Stafford Flint Furnace. This structure is a couple hundred years old. It took a beating during the great quake of 2011.
As can be seen in this photo. They put seismic measuring devices on it. That won’t save it.
Triple headed shrooms and our hike is done! Nice day!
