I love this fence for so many reasons--its simplicity, its weathered patina, its zigzag meandering, its topsy-turvy stance, the whorls of the wood grain, the bolts used to fasten it--I could go on, but why not just show the pictures?

This is a low fence at Toll Bridge Park, near Parkdale, Oregon.

One last reason to love the fence is that it led me to this sign. I've taken quite a few walks through this park, and this fence is prominent. You have to pass it to get almost anywhere. But I've never seen the sign at its southeastern end. It says "TRAIL". Well, who knew? Not me! Next time we're there, I will explore that overgrown path.

Click on any of the pictures to see them in their full-sized glory.

Ooh, a secret path, very neat. Hopefully, someone has not put that there just to be cute. Or, maybe you will blaze a brand new trail...
