Friday My Town Shoot Out - Country Roads

Well there aren't too many country roads around here so this is just a few pictures of the lesser traveled road.

A road called Descanso, an original Gabriola road.

Old cobblestone road in Nanaimo

An old logging road over looking Vancouver Island

This lead to the old ski hill on Mt. Cokely in Port Alberni

Love your logging roads. And how you throw in a bear - and don't even mention it! Just another bear out for a stroll? I'd love to drive along that third road. Maybe I will one day, I do intend to return to Vancouver Island for a third visit.

Take me to the Snow road behind Nanaimo to go skiing. The white makes the photo so beautiful. Otherwise, your roads are similar to my New Zealand road.

Rebecca said...

That looks like a good collection of country roads to me!

Kerry said...

That bear looks like a neufie to me. And your roads seem familiar...must be because I'm only a day's drive away! Beautiful shots.

Your "another logging road" picture really gives a sense of the size of those trees.

Excellent shots of some very rugged roads.

Chef E said...

Oh I was there I was there! two years ago, was beautiful as the pics you have taken!

How are you, I still come over, but you have been quiet lately!

Sarah, when I see your shots I feel good with the suggested theme. Great job.

Wonderful shots! The penultimate photo is my favorite.

You live in a beautiful area, and you captured it well!

Kim said...

Gor-Gee-ous! Love the different seasons...the dramatic colors...the bear-dog walking up the road...all very peaceful and happy!
