A view from a country road – 2

Posted on August 31, 2022


Here is Part 2 of my country road walk.

Not only is the walk scenic, but it has a few hills, so I am getting my aerobic workout in. Here are some of the views from the top. I especially love seeing the mountains in the background.

I was so excited about this view and the fact that my phone actually had service (because I was on top of a hill), that I texted my friend Lisa with these pictures. Except, as soon as I sent them, I realized I should have waited. It was 7:00 am on a Sunday morning and not everyone is up and about at that time. Oops.

A country road wouldn’t be complete without some stone walls.

As I am walking back to our place, I see the back end of a baby bear! Oops, I was trying to remember what you are supposed to do if you come across a bear. Do you pretend to be dead and not move or do you wave and shout and move your arms? Luckily I didn’t have to remember since the little guy scampered back into the woods. I didn’t have a chance to take a picture, but this Internet photo gives you the idea.

Ah, there is nothing like a bracing walk along a country road to make you feel at peace with the world.

What experiences have you had on country roads?
