    What beautiful photos, Lisa. #3 is stunning, but not when I’d want to walk it. I only discovered the trail recently; it’s near The Writer’s Center in Bethesda, and during a week-long all-day class, some of us would sneak out at lunch time and decompress on the trail. It would be a shame to see it damaged by a light-rail line.

    The Washington Post had a cover story the other day about a number of homes who are going to have the train run right in front of their homes; the government won’t buy their homes, instead is taking their front yards. They had a photo of a house where the guy would have about four feet between his front door and the train tracks.

    It’s insane they didn’t architect the Metro to connect across the Maryland suburbs, but perhaps there’s a better way to do it with rail.

      Thanks Patrick.

      For reading and thinking about the issues. I think the Post has been covering this well. It all is quite sad.

      In terms of the pics – The snowy day was actually wonderful in a way, don’t you miss the a light snowfall?

    Beautiful photos, Lisa. I love the one of the trail in snow. That poor guy who is losing his front yard … are they actually allowed to do that to him?

      Yes, they can. Sort of disconcerting. The sound is one aspect, but the vibrations are the real concern. This could cause problems within the building. Thanks for the note!
