Forgotten Byway

I:   falling canopy

     blankets forgotten byway -

     dappled light and leaves

     
II:  falling canopy

     weaves a leafy gold blanket -

     forgotten byway

     recedes, tucked in dappled light ...

     sun and shadow bow and dance

I took the photo above last fall at Goosepond Mountain State Park, Chester, NY. The road that you see, or what’s left of it, is Lazy Hill Road. At one time it connected Route 17m to Laroe Road, but it’s only been open to people on foot, bicycle, or horseback for many years. The shaded main trail is an easy hike spanning 2.6 miles one way, and 5.2 miles round trip;  a lovely place to ramble for a few hours or to spend some energetic time out with the dog!  🙂

This post is my response to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Alleys, Driveways, Parking Lots, Dirt Roads, Jennifer Nichole Wells’s One Word Photo Challenge: Blanket, The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Landscape, and my belated response to The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Dance.

    1. Is your forest in Germany? I have heard that the Hudson Valley of New York, where I took this photo, has similar foliage to the foliage in Germany. This makes the word feel very small to me!
