NCR Trail & more

Linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences  

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

These are some photos from our walk on the nearby NCR Trail.  It was an old railway and has been turned into a bike-hike and running trail..Sometimes we see horse back riders too.  I am also sharing some moon and sky shots for my Skywatch Friday post..


We saw a few woodpeckers like the Redbellied Woodie above.


A section of the trail crosses the stream but I took this shot mainly for my Good Fence post.. I hope this works as a fence photo.


There were lots of berries around and some yellow colors still left on the trees..


Some more autumn trees and contrails in the sky above..


I like the jet trails in this shot, a pretty blue sky during our walk on the NCR trail.



Another shot of the Redbellied woodpecker.


Another section of winding stream, a fence, more pretty red berries..


The moon shot is from Nov 8th.. a pretty almost full moon. I hope you enjoyed our walk. Thanks for coming along..


To see more pretty skies from around the world please visit  Skywatch Friday
and check more fence shots at Tex's Good Fences


Thanks to Theresa @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences and thanks to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday.   I wish everyone a safe and happy long weekend.

  32. Hello Eileen,
    thanks for your visit at my place :)
    I read here that you're not good at taking pictures. Ha! Your pictures tell a different story :) And you're able to take a damn good shot of the moon, which I (or is it my lousy camera?) am not able to.
    I just would have liked to see some of the red berries from a little closer ;)
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  34. I felt like I was watching a play. Act 1 the beautiful foliage, enter the woodpecker, Act II the sky, Act III, enter the wood pecker again and the moon, the beautiful moon. Nice post.

    ReplyDelete

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  36. Love the Red-bellied Woodpecker. The trail looks so pretty with all those red berries scattered throughout.

    ReplyDelete
  37. You still had some pretty autumn scenery at that time. I wonder if the red berries are winterberry. the bridge/fence is pretty too.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Eileen.
