The Rails of Mississippi
I could have called this site, "Mississippi Rails" but that name would have clashed with another site's name and, besides, this one is a bit more expansive in nature. Here, the old railroads become adventures down their right of ways. Viewing old engines doesn't get it for me. I have to be there which has been an obsession. Unfortunately, evidence is disappearing at an alarming rate and, often, many of my pictures leave, even me, wondering what the heck I was shooting. Traveling Mississippi is a pleasure and a pain. The pleasure part is the feeling of being in another state on vacation, the pain part is the length of the trip, but then, challenges have never detoured my attempts until recently and that is a pain in itself. Hope you enjoy my efforts there and here.
