A Road Less Travelled

By Jasper87  
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;
.......... Robert Frost

This is the old Trans-Canada Highway near Mount Edith Cavell (Jasper region). 'Awesome' was a frequently heard word in Canada but very fitting in this instance.

The low cloud is unreal making those mountains appear to be in the sky!
The autumnal colour is 'awesome' - don't think we have a word to match the American superlative.
Beautiful and fitting poem.
Your heart must have been bursting with joy on this trip.

Apt description Dave, "awesome " scenery. Perhaps the person responsible for that line, had a few Whiskeys before they started !!
Adds to the wilderness emotion, my award.

Hi Dave I'm very jealous, your photo brings back memories of 3 months in the Rockies back in 1995, lovely shot and great autumn colours. I'm guessing you are enjoying the turquoise lakes? Jen

Wow Dave, those mountains in the back ground are very disorientating, exceptionally well taken as always.

The number of times I drive down a road and wish I would stand in the middle of it because there seems to be the best view. Sadly I am too much of a coward to risk getting run over.
