The Road Ahead

Top: A road that was never developed lies
across from our house. It goes up and UP
...great trekking with the dogs!
There are no street lights on it so
it makes for a dark woods
(we have just one street light near us
and it
is off more than it is on.)
This is a photo of the first light 'snow;'
called The Road Ahead. Bottom:
This photo doesn't show the
BIG picture, but up the trail
there was an entire mountain
side of ferns curled up 'asleep'
in the frost, slowly awakened by
the touch of the first sunlight
rays through the forest.


  1. There's a lovely stillness in the photos, lg. You captured the essence of the woods beautifully.

  2. Again - such a beautiful place, lg. Those unpaved roads are great when you can find them. :)

  3. Those ferns are lovely and the road makes a good hiking trail. We haven't had snow yet although if we had had the precipitation at night we would have. I am glad I found your blog.

  4. Talon,
    Thank you! It was so quiet and peaceful there. I need to pull up a chair. :)
    Yes, I liked the unpaved road on your blog last week also! I pray that there will be unpaved roads to find always.
    Appalachian Lady,
    I am so glad I found your blog as well, added it to my blog roll! I do have pics of this area for a bit over one year; have photos of the 'wicked' winter we had last year; 3rd most severe on record for these ol' mountains here. Ug!


Please do...tell.
