River views

I was on assignment to the San Joaquin River yesterday and headed out to the park at Mossdale for a quick view of the river. I hiked down a short trail and went down to the river’s edge where a rusty car seat was propped up on the bank. I assumed it was a fisherman’s chair but it just seemed so out of place.

Back up and heading out I tried for a view from the railroad bridge that straddles the river. I have passed by this bridge hundreds of times but had never stepped foot on it. Rusty grating and old wood pilings gave me an uneasy feeling as I ventured out on it.

Two views from the river I have not seen before or most likely will again.
