Photo Challenge: Solitary

The Walhonding River in Coshocton, Ohio with a rainbow and sunshine

This week’s photo challenge from WordPress is the word “Solitary.” My response was discovered in the late morning sunshine yesterday as I walked along part of the Three Rivers Trail from downtown to Lake Park.

This photo from Coshocton, Ohio was taken from the footbridge crossing the Walhonding River, shortly before it meets with the Tuscarawas to form the Muskingum River. Before having the bridge to myself, I watched the photo shoot of a young man, possibly for senior pictures or homecoming court.

Autumn in Coshocton is packed with activity, but the wait made the photo and solo time on the bridge all the more meaningful.

Love, Marla

  1. Love the sunbeams. Paddled through here many times. But, last October was the most memorable. I was on a week-long canoe trip for my 60th birthday and, as I passed under the footbridge, it happened that a couple I know from home – 70 miles away – were walking across it and spotted my canoe.

    • Irv, what a beautiful comment. That sounds so wonderful. I would love to paddle the river sometime. We used to canoe all the time when I was a child but I haven’t done it in years.
      That must have been such a wonderful moment to see your friends. I can’t think of a better way to spend a birthday, especially a 60th. 60 is the new 40, don’tcha know? 😀

      • Yes, I don’t get hung up on age. Plan to be doing this when I’m 80. Been canoe camping 32 years, even do it in the winter. I paddle the Mohican and Muskingum mostly. You’re welcome to come along. My only criteria there is that you don’t litter and respect nature.
