Dinwiddie behind the scenes

Railroad tracks

For the most part, the path along the train tracks through Downey is dry and dusty. Then there's this little section behind Dinwiddie Street. I've never seen this section before—there's no road that goes beside it, no destination at the end.

Suddenly there are all these rocks, like the remains of some past construction. There's no indication where they came from, no hint of previous retaining walls or bridges. Just a sudden spate of rocks. And all along the rocks, these big leafy plants grow wild. Clearly the plants are drought-tolerant, since there's no water along here.

It almost looks like it's been professionally landscaped. What a shame it's wasted on freight instead of tourists.
