This rocky ledge overlooks Penn's Creek above the railroad tunnel and bridge just down stream from Coburn. The railroad was built in 1879 for the logging industry, and Poe Valley was the site of a major lumber mill. Depicted here is a Shay engine delivering a train of log-filled cars to the mill. It was during this era that the last lions were reportedly observed in the area. This rock outcrop fills one's imagination as a recluse for a lion. Could this be the last Nittany lion?

"Bear Tracks" is the third release in the "Train Tracks Series". "Bear Tracks" follows "Turkey Tracks" and "Deer Tracks". It features a Camelback locomotive (Engine #1584) winding through bear country.

Spring Turkey Tracks is the fifth in the Train Tracks Series. By not incorporating a train I have removed the tension caused with the train bearing down on the wildlife, and thus allowing for a casual crossing of the tracks.

View the winter gathering of a turkey flock on the WK&S railroad outside of Kempton. Here they gather under the oak trees to fill up on the acorns of which there was a good crop this year. Among them you'll find the smoke gray, color aberration turkey being accepted and feeding among the flock. Use your imagination to figure out in which direction they will scatter... or will they fly as the steam locomotive comes down on them?

TRAIN TRACKS SERIES

In the year 2002 Dan ventured into something in addition to wildlife in his paintings.  Thus began his "Train Tracks Series" in which he incorporated wildlife in the scenes along with rail road tracks and steam engines.  It became a play on words, hence Turkey Tracks was the first painting in the series quite by accident.  The second in this series was Deer Tracks.  These first two editions have been sold out.  Still there remain six additional 'Tracks' with the seventh, Fox Tracks, revealed below, and shortly to be in print.

Somewhere along the line 'SunsOut'  a puzzle manufacturer and distributor asked to produce puzzles of Dan's train tracks. Click on 'Puzzles' to see the collection offered.
