I made up the Abandoned Turnpike assignment at Schenley Park in Oakland. I go walking on the Bridle Trail nearly every day so I’m pretty familiar with the trail and the things along it. As I was walking down the trail I noticed a narrow dirt path leading into the woods. I decided to follow it to see if I could find something fresh to photograph. I was not disappointed. The path led deep enough into the woods that I forgot I was even in the city. I got some great photos that I’m really happy with.
