Through The Arches

Although city-life typically has plenty to offer, there's nothing quite like escaping to the outskirts to discover places far less traveled. 

This past week, Jake showed me one of his former go-to spots; a quite old, arched-stone railway bridge that is still in use. I'm actually quite familiar with the location, have known about it for years, and have always wanted to check it out, but for one reason or another never have.

Inside one of the entrances.
 
If you look close enough, you can see a deer fording the river in the midground.

 A bicycle hangs precariously from a tree.


 One of the other perks to this spot was the dare-I-say ancient graffiti that still lingers in a few of the archways. I couldn't locate too many dates, but I believe the pieces below date back to the year 2002.

 "Ceps"

 "Crow" w/ 12/02 marked above it.

 "Fucko"

I probably should have grabbed a few shots of the bridge from afar to display how truly massive this thing is, but I'll save that for next time. Thanks again, Jake, for motivating me to finally give this place a visit!
