I invite you to join me as we travel down the roads less travelled and explore parts of my world.
Staying on paved roads and well known roads can at time be boring, so today we check out a few roads that may be more trail than road.
We'll pretend that we are all in one vehicle, cause that way we can carry on a good conversation as we travel.
As we turn off a main road and start following this trail, we laugh and remark how women of our age should not be doing this. My question is 'Says who?'
We are young at heart and can go most anywhere we want to.
Isn't this a peaceful road? Only the wind in the trees and a few birds to keep us company .
Just beside this road/trail is a lovely meadow, surrounded by mature trees. I was waiting for a deer to step out of the tree line, but it never did.
The following four pictures are from a different excursion . As you can see, even this road is not a main road, but isn't this a pretty scene?
I love seeing the blue sky and the lovely yellow of the Canola fields on either side of the road.
Obviously we are still in Canola country, but the attraction here is that endless row of power poles.
A little further down the road are some more big structures, even bigger than the power poles. These wind turbines are huge.These were taken from a distance, but when you get up close to them their size is amazing.
A short stop at a small park out in the rural area not far from Morden, yields some interesting trees. Anytime I see the combination of blue sky and green trees and grass, that makes a good picture in my mind.
Something tells me that this old tree does not have many years left to stand. It looks like a lot of it is hollow.
Just a short drive northwest of Morden stands this tree. I have admired it for years and also taken many pictures of it. Something about it's shape and gnarled limbs just draws me to it.
Thunderheads building up in the east, right around sunset, make a beautiful scene.
We have travelled, north and south of Morden to find some interesting views. The conversation has been pleasant and uplifting. I am certain that if we could all be together we would have so many things to discuss, there would never be a dull moment .
For our final stop today, I take you to this beautiful tree, or cluster of trees, that sits near the Pembina Valley. This time we are there at sunset, so the warm evening light enriches the scene.
Thank-you for joining me on some of my travels. The miles seem shorter when they are travelled with friends.
