I predicted a visit to the old Fletcher Viaduct would be something akin to visiting a Civil War battleground- you’d have to use A LOT of imagination. But, I wanted to check it out because the footings are a Historical-Cultural Monument. To my surprise, this old Red Car Property is still very much alive.
Hooray for guerilla gardening! Small stairwells have been carved into the hillside for the wanderers’ convenience. There are grapevines, zucchini, flowers, and several hearts with nonsense written on them. “Hear it tree ya.” “It’s Howdy, Hooray! Be ya!” “More it on ya.” While I’m not at all clear on what these guerillas are talking about, I’m excited about their work nonetheless.
