We actually had a calm, nice morning today. We haven't had a nice day like this in well over a week - it's not snowing or raining and there isn't any crazy wind or thick fog. I took advantage of the nice weather and snapped some pictures of our daily drive this morning.
The nearest school bus stop is over 8 miles away, so I drive our kids to and from school every day - it’s just over an hour round trip. Seven miles of that drive is on a one-lane pothole strewn gravel logging road. People wonder why I go through tires so quickly or why I’m visiting the local tire store getting a flat fixed at least once a month – well it’s because I drive anywhere between 28 to 56 miles up and down the mountain on that one-lane pothole strewn gravel logging road. The county road is in need of some serious repair but the scenery is spectacular.
Here are some pictures of our daily drive...
|I love this section of the road with the 100+ foot tall old growth trees|
that are partially covered in moss and the lush green wall of sword ferns.
|There is a small rock slide and landslide that is currently covered in snow.|
Thankfully the driveway is still passable though.
Just one more thing that has been added to the very long to-do-list.
|The wind knocked over two trees.|
|The mountain is out... well almost. The top is still hiding in the clouds.|
