Take the Overgrown Path

The path was overgrown but there were horse hoof prints in the mud. Which meant this could be a trail. I followed it and discovered some closer views of something I’ve only seen from afar before. A power substation:

It’s odd to me how the trails run so close to and even right under the most unnatural looking things. This transmission tower looks like an alien praying mantis from this angle:

The power transmission forms are so geometric in stark contrast to the organic forms in the plant life in the surrounding area:

I’m glad I took the overgrown path today. It was less traveled as they say. No doubt I’ll go again that way.
