Taking the High Road

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -

i took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.

Thank you, Robert Frost!

    I don’t think we have any less-traveled roads here in Southern California …

    Mom loves that poem! She told it to me when I was tiny pup because I never liked to stay on the paths but instead wandered off on my own routes. Your hike looks beautiful…ledges and all!

    Ha roo roo roo! You two are great. Dave said that Robert Frost dude wrote some good stuff. I asked him if he wrote any Haik-woo and Dave said “no” — so how good could he be?

    I love the poem by Frost! I think Rusty and Kiska have the right idea!

    You’ve converted my husband. He ordered the seatbelt harnesses yesterday!

    Rusty looks well proud of himself 🙂

    Khumbu does exactly the same, if there is a different route to be taken, it will be his!

    Hmmmm… Your blog is coming out really funny to me – the font is very tiny and the pictures are scattered everywhere! LOL – I did find the pictures and the comment section though! I’ve always loved Robert Frost!
