I celebrated my 60th birthday by walking 6.6 miles in the city park adjacent to my boyhood home. My family has 10 acres right next to the park, and I spent many a day roaming its woods as a boy. There's a lot of history in the canyon that runs through the park. This old pumping station has been hit by vandals. Last time I was at this spot a few years ago, the big gear laying on the ground was bolted to the top. There are remains of an old saw mill not far away.

I think the old saw mill I mentioned was run by natural gas; the creek that runs nearby usually doesn't have enough force to power a mill. The first image is of a spring near the ruins - the bubbles are natural gas percolating up through the soil. The second image is of the saw mill ruins, and the third image is of the old natural gas pipes. I'm pretty certain the gas was drawn from local underground deposits.

Two separate walks with my new toy (Voigtländer Ultron 35mm f/2 VM); I guess it's better to post in one go this time.
