This is one of a series of paintings I rendered of the Hayward Lake railway trail, a trail that follows along the western edge of the lake. It is a manmade lake, which was made around 1912 when the construction of a hydro dam at its most southern end was completed. I have been walking this trail over the years and I have discovered many potential paintings hidden here. I see more than 10 potential paintings during each visit but with each visit, more possible paintings come to light. In its day, the logging system railway that once ran along this lake trail was part of the world's largest logging railway system. It lasted until the late 1940s. The remains of several wooden trestle bridges still remain along this trail.
