Ailsa’s travel theme this week is: “WOOD.” Themes inspire others to share thoughts and/or images of common subjects.
The 2181 mile (3510 km) Appalachian Trail meanders east over an often wet area in Vernon, New Jersey, off SR 517. The wonderful volunteers may not be the best surveyors in the world, but they do create interesting boardwalks!
Less than a mile further east is this impressively constructed wood and cable suspension bridge, taking the trail over Pochuck Creek.
Rest benches offer an opportunity to stop and appreciate the selfless and skilled work of the trail volunteers.
