New Trails from Old Rails - Book Blurb Friday #34

Lisa Ricard Claro sponsors this flash fiction meme on her blog. We are to create a storyline using 150 words or less that could be found on the inside flap of a book jacket of an imaginary book cover featuring this photo. This week’s photo was provided by Becky Povich.

New Trails from Old Rails

Thousands of miles of no-longer-used rail rights-of-way have been converted by communities all across this country into biking and hiking trails, often using funds meant to keep areas in a nearly undeveloped state. Most often, these are in areas of higher population, but can be located anywhere.

Often, newer residents in an area are totally unaware that at one time there was rail service to their community. Our goal is to provide you with the locations of these new trails as well as the history behind them. A change in use shouldn’t cause history to be forgotten.

Join us on our journey across country as we visit these rails to trails to see how the past has benefitted the present.

Welcome back to BBF! And you started up with a bang. I love this, and it suits the photo to a tee. Nicely done!
