Country Drives

This time of year is perfect for a country drive. We took our usual route back in the mountains last week until we got to the first stop sign.

Instead of our usual left, we took a right. About a mile down the road, we emerged from the National Forest and crossed the state line into Oklahoma. Out of the Forest, we were in were in rolling farmland.
There isn't any color to speak of in the trees just yet, but we enjoyed the beautiful scenery. I especially loved this old bridge that we crossed. You don't see many like them anymore--they are all being replaced with new concrete bridges. I know they're probably much safer, but not nearly as picturesque!

Have you been on any country drives lately?


  1. Oh me...when my family crosses a bridge like that we always sing...♫ London Bridge is Falling Down, Falling Down, Falling Down...London Bridge is Falling Down...My Fair Lady! ♫

    Nice scenery there!

    Happy Labor Day!

  2. Hi Rosemary, no country drives lately, but I enjoyed coming along on yours! Our trees are starting to get some color, won't be long till they're ablaze:)

  3. Hi RM, Nice to see your comment over on my site.
    Isn't this a beautiful time of year?
    I just started making a rag rug, if my arm doesn't fall off I just might finish it. I always get a lot of energy this time of year, not sure why but I like it.
    Your pictures are so pretty !

  4. I love country drives, also. There's a lot of those bridges in our area and we've went over quite a few lately, they are kinda neat. Hope you've had a good Labor Day weekend.

  5. Hi RoseMary thanks for the compliments on my pics. I love your pics of your drive we haven't been on one lately but Doug has some time off this week so maybe we'll get one in this week. Love the bridge. Isn't it amazing what one choice can bring you- left or right>>> I just love that.

  6. Beautiful! I love to go on country drives!

  7. What great pics! Loved seeing them, so thanks for sharing them. One or two trees are "trying" to turn down here, believe it or not. lol And some of the leaves are already falling. I'm so glad that the hot/humid days are behind us! :)

  8. Well we didn't go on a back roads drive but we did go on a ride. Have pictures on my blog. Am glad you had a good drive.
