You must feel so happy to be able to drive that road and know it is taking you to YOUR home.

Are there any wild grapes on your road. If so they make the best grape jelly imaginable. I always come home in Sept to get grapes for jelly.

That's one of those scenes that just screams "welcome home" to me.

This reminds me of a poem I had to learn in the 5th grade. It always stuck with me...

Robert Frost. 1875–

67. The Road Not Taken

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Peace to you Jenna and your slice of heaven...

Can I run with you?

Or just walk behind you slowly? Like everything else in my life? Walk behind slowly, until all my plans and decisions follow yours precisely, solo that I may be as perfect as your blog?

Cause I want that.

We live at the end of a long country road, too. I love driving along it to home. I have to pinch myself most of the time. Your photograph is lovely!

Jenna--I lived on a road like this previously (wish I were still there) but it was on a mountain ridge so it was steep--dirt and gravel with woods close on both sides. I loved it--there was so much wildlife to see--quail, skunks, owls, hawks, and much more. I loved every minute I lived there. But a funny thing happened, we invited friends up to visit (from around Wash, DC) and they insisted they had to leave before it got dark because they were afraid of being out where I lived when it got dark. You know, no street lights, no bustling streets! Ha. Let's see, which would you consider more of a threat--deep in the inner city or deep in the woods? I'll take the woods any day. I walked the road day or night and never feared for my safety. They just had a different perspective. To me it was heaven--the darkness let me see the stars so well and I loved the sounds of the woods.

Gorgeous!

Jealous!

I have to make do with a view of Mt. Hood at the end of the street going into my neighborhood. I know I should be grateful for any kind of view, and I am, but it would be so much better at the end of a country road!

Lucky you!

this is about 2 miles from the farm, straight down the road and into those hills behind.

I don't run here yet, can't make it yet. I will start by next month, I hope.

If you'll check on my blog, Thinking About It (link below), there's a post I wrote a a year or so ago entitled The last two miles home. Funny but your pic looks a whole lot like my neck of the woods...except I'm in Oregon!
