A Yellow Wood

This photo reminded me of Robert Frost’s most famous poem:

The Road not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves, no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

I hope you are enjoying your path. 🙂

Lake Walks

I took a lovely walk along this arm of Great Slave Lake.

This arm of the lake looks almost like a river.

There is some outflow into it, but it really is a sort of minor fjord.

The clouds were aligned with the lake.

It was a pretty day, but Great Slave Lake is large enough to create its own weather, a fact that came home to roost today with a deluge that lasted more than an hour. Unfortunately, there was no walking.

Happy mid-week greetings from Canada’s (now) sunny north. 😎
