Travel Theme: Roads

In the US we have a special love for roads – because we have a special love for cars. Decisions were made at a critical time, by powerful men, to put money into car production and road building instead of public transportation. This is unfortunate for our environment, but it is what it is – and I have to admit that although I love traveling by train in England & Europe, I still love the “road trip.” I love hitting the open road to see all there is to see. I love getting off the beaten path, to take back roads through small towns and farm country. I’m not afraid of the “road less traveled”.

Here are some of the roads I have traveled.

  1. That first one of the mountain pass has me intrigued and dreading the idea of snow even or than usual at the same time.

    Nice

    • Hi Ben, that first picture was taken in June, going through a mountain pass to get to the mountain pasture of Son Kul in Kyrgyzstan. I have several posts on this experience by checking my posts under Kyrgyzstan.
