|Grandmother's Own Quilt Block|
Walking Wednesdays is a new weekly feature of my blog, focusing on my walks and the sites that I see along the way throughout the week. Of course, I will tie each walking adventure into a quilt block!
I had the best ever walking partners this week - my lovely daughter-in-law and my very first grandchild! It was such a treat to get to take an after-dinner walk with them on a trail near their home.
The path is a rail-trail - a trail made from former rail lines. Because these former tracks are flat and long and often through scenic areas, they make ideal trails for walking, biking, and even horseback riding. "Rails-to-Trails Conservancy is a non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C., whose mission it is to create a nationwide network of trails from former rail lines and connecting corridors to build healthier places for healthier people."
Do you have a rail-trail near your home? There are more than 20,000 miles of rail-trail throughout the United States. Click here to find trails in your state.
