Just about every day since I have moved to Lindsborg I have walked the Valkommen (welcome in Swedish) Trail either as I was on an errand or just needing the exercise.  It wasn’t until yesterday that I discovered that there was much more to the trail.

Following direction I veered from my normal path and discovered so much more.  The trail follows what was once a railroad line leading into McPherson.  As a kid I remember seeing the bridge that was used by the train to pass over the Smoky Hill River.  For the first time I was able to cross as a pedestrian.

It was evening when I found this portion of the trail so I didn’t get that far.  I have something to look forward to as I travel farther on the path.  It’s so beautiful!

All it took was a suggestion, a slight variation, and courage to move into the unknown.
