I-5, Trains and the Green River

The Green River Trail meanders along a lovely river.  However, to the other side is industry which includes trains, freeways and a view of the Codiga Bridge (the above picture shows how it crosses the rails and I-5). Let us start with the loveliness of river life – an older farmhouse and a backyard retreat of 60’s orange chairs.

This pastoral view disappeared as I went under the freeway.  I was so astounded by the noise and how it created a sense of vertigo.   I hovered between the river, the freeway and the train. Here is the view looking up.  Massive cement and steel over my head and as I just mentioned I was overtaken by a form of dizziness from the energy and noise it was creating.

The the train started to move across the river which gave me an opportunity to take a video to share how it all felt.  The noise you hear may trick you.   It has a train like sound, however, it is not the train but the sound of the freeway traffic going over the bridge above.
