Which road would you take ???

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I …
I took the one less traveled by,
and that has made all the difference”.

Robert Frost, 1874 - 1963













I don’t think these were the roads that Robert Frost had in mind when he wrote those words but it got me to thinking.

I find it a little mind boggling when I look back on the roads I’ve taken and those I chose not to follow. Do you ever wonder where you’d be if you’d taken a different path?

I love looking at all these roads you've found! You ask, "Which road would you take?" And I have decided I like that last one, the one that loops around under itself. Somehow it reminds me of the "W" Road, a switchback road, I used to take once or twice a day when I lived near the top of it on Signal Mountain, just outside Chattanooga, Tennessee. That's where I raised my three children. You can see it here:

Yes I do sometimes. We are all faced with many choices in life. How different would we be had we chosen differently. It is a fun exercise.

Sure. But ultimately I come to the same conclusion. I wouldn't have had my three beautiful children had I taken a different path.

There are some decisions that would have changed everything, but there are others that wouldn't. A few of those I might like to change.

I think that I would have ended up doing much the same thing. I am not the director really. Somehow, I believe in destiny. Good to think about.

I've done the second one and I'd love to walk the wooden path to the ocean cabanas.

In a couple of cases I wonder. What if I had not married so young but gone onto college as planned. Would I have met a better person as my future husband, or was I so neurotic I would have married the same kind of guy...an alcoholic? Would I have gone after that PhD history degree sooner and been a college professor about to retire?

I do like your road photos. My favorite is the road through 20' snow banks. Dianne

Good question, Ginnie. I too have travelled many paths in my life, although not in the travel sense. Some have been set by other events or people, but overall have turned out for the better.

Some very interesting roads. Many of the cars I have driven in my time would dangerous on some of these road. I remember descending Mount Washington in my car, with canoe on top, with my clutch failing to hold. I largely road the break down the steep road.
I am sorry you missed the most dangerous road in the world in Bolivia, I am sure you can find you tube video about it.
