A Favourite Rural Road

After a short Thanksgiving visit 'down south' yesterday, we drove home and took the opportunity to drive down one of our favourite rural roads, even though it had been spitting rain all the way home.  It was like entering a golden wonderland, the overhead canopy just glowing with rich yellow colours.  Take a look!







All of these pictures were taken along about a 1 km. stretch of road, where the wide road allowance hasn't been cleared of trees.  This road isn't kept open in the winter, as there are no dwellings along it, but it's certainly a beautiful drive the rest of the year!

Since I like these pictures so much, I'll share them both with Our World Tuesday and Nature Notes.  This is what our world is like today; nature sure provides a never-ending source of beauty!

  4. Someone else had a road in the forest on their blog today. My comment to this road business is that it makes it easy to transport yourself into the front seat of the car as you travel down this very road. Lovely shots.

  18. Belated Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! We too have many yellow leaves which plays with the light making everything golden. Even people who aren't usually nature lovers can be lured in with fall color...Michelle
