the train tracks in the "capitol view" neighborhood allowed one to bypass numerous very steep hills en route to this historic tavern on the other side.
there were other train track destinations as well.
a world of wonders rewarded the intrepid enough to roam the tracks at night. a family of fox traversing along the tracks, en route to their home. a temporary hobo campsite not far away, sounds of owls. coyotes(?), torrents of creek water, breaking under the trestle bridge after a heavy rain. lottsa stars!
all these wonders in a dreamers head, often moved by cheap beer. walking the tracks. walking home. weary of blinding headlights and train horns.
a little danger. a little drama.
always have a plan b when encountering an oncoming train.
