LAPC: Long & Winding June 9, 2020 / amoralegria Lens-Artists’ 100th(!) photo challenge is long and winding roads. French countryside, province of Normandy Not exactly a road, actually it’s a path. But it’s a long way down! Above the town of Arromanches, France and Port Winason. The British created an artificial harbor here using old barges and truck bodies, which was named Port Winston, in preparation for D-Day. The island of Mont St-Michel is reached by a long causeway at low tide (at high tide, the island is cut off from the shore). Taken from the abbey at the top of Mont St-Michel, France. Are we looking down at the road just traveled, the road yet to be traveled, or the road not traveled? Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, USA The road winds up and down mountains at Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. A long and winding hiking trail (which we did not explore) at Arches National Park, Utah, USA. We were content to photograph the scenery! A dusty and winding road at the base of Masada plateau, Israel – the workers’ entrance? A very long and very dusty path for the hardy hikers who take it up to the Masada plateau. Taken from the cable car our group wisely chose! Another photo of hikers on a very windy path taken from the top, at Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah. Not much of the road is visible here, but the sign tells us about it! Near Oatman, Arizona, USA Around that 15 mph bend in the road and who do we see? A couple of Oatman residents on the road! Oatman, Arizona, an old mining town today survives because of the tourists on Route 66, (of which this is a part), who come for the burros that hang around town – and hike along the road! Oatman has a couple of Route 66 touristy stores and buildings that are the remnants of its mining heyday. Leaving Sedona, Arizona, after a weekend celebration of the 70th anniversary of Verde Valley School, where I attended high school (but much less than 70 years ago!). And to end, I can’t resist – because this is what I was singing in my head while composing this post. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
