February Photofest – Day 17


All righty…I know I said I was going to post just one image per day for the Photofest Challenge, with little or no explanation, but since I’m unable to post anything else while I’m traveling I’m going to go ahead and set up the next few days’ worth of Photofest pics with a little explanation, like I did at the beginning of the last series (here.) Because of the nature of the pics, some of them require more than just one image to tell the story, and some may even need quite a bit of me yakking atcha to explain. But hopefully not too much, so that the essence of the Challenge (as I have interpreted it) will not be lost.

So…this is the first in a series of Scavenger Hunt pictures we did on a long, hot day last summer over in the river town of Grafton, Illinois. If you remember, W and I had taken a weekend trip there a few weeks before in which we’d done a lot of scening as well as had some outdoor and Scavenger Hunt fun. This time it was just a day trip, but we made the most of it. Over the next few days I’ll be posting pics from the several different Scavenger Hunts that we got.

Day 17 – Bike Path



I just looked through the Scavenger Hunt locations list and realized that “Bike Path/Trail” isn’t on the official list (I was sure it was.) I saw “hiking trail/dirt path” but this is obviously different than that – and here in the US, bike trails are a distinctly different thing than a regular hiking trail. This is actually at the beginning of the 20-mile long Sam Vadalabene Great River Road Bike Trail.

So? Scavenger Hunt or not? Either way, it was the beginning to a fun, fun day…


And regardless of that, be sure to check out all the other February Photofest Challengers!

    Oh I hope bike path becomes one of the locations and then I just have to try and make a photo on one of our bike paths. It’s time for better weather and then some walks with Master T :)

    Lovely photos!

    A cycle trail is a great location to add to the list, and I have done so! We have a bunch of them here in New Zealand too… something I’ll be keeping an eye out for!

    Great photos (as always!), Jade :)
