This week’s LAPC challenge by Beth of Wandering Dawgs comes at just the right time: We’re beginning to travel again! But with that decision, we’ve decided on a different path: We’ll navigate side roads only. That’s right. We’re avoiding the interstate and cruising through small towns, past farmland and fences, and waving at cows, farmers on tractors, and fields of corn. It’s summertime in the country.
I’d rather be on my farm than be emperor of the world.George Washington
And, oh, the places and sites we see! From the weathered North Carolina barn at the top of this post to the country residences you can rent at Mast Farm Inn in Valle Crucis. Our travel along back country roads offers fresh air and scenes of past times and simpler lives. It really does make you want to sit a spell and stay a while.
Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat.Laura Ingalls Wilder
So join us on the back roads. Roll down those windows, look for barns and country homes, and settle in for pretty scenery and great faces!
Next week, join Ana Campo of Anvica’s Gallery for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #159. Her theme will be “Postcards.”
Until then . . . take the country roads whenever you can.
