Roads less travelled

Unread post by Meandering Mouse » Sun Apr 24, 2016 5:34 am

There is nothing quite like it...just you and the road. These are often the moments when I will stop to take in the moment... the sights, the smells, the sounds. It is an experience of the poetry of nature.

This thread is to invite people to post their own roads less traveled.

I think these were taken on the S100.

I frequently start my year in Kruger. One year I took my family and a few of their friends to Punda Maria.

On New Year's Ever, I took a drive, minus the younger folk. They were preparing a special potjie for the evening.

I found a place to sit an reflect before returning to an evening of chatter and laughter.

This is my road less traveled.

:thumbs_up: Elsa and Trrp.

Lion Queen, how stunning. I could not agree more.

This is on the S1, taken at the height of Summer. I always love this view as I turn the corner.

Lion Queen, is that not perhaps the gravel road that turns into the S1 :hmz: It is same eco zone and beauty.

Pumbaa, I know what you mean about homesickness..

There is always a certain excitement when passing through the camp gates. This is a favorite little camp of mine, just because it offers so much of the unexpected.

I have never been to Pafuri Gate. It looks a "must do".

One of those moments.
