Off Roading Fun

We love outdoor adventures, and feel the lure to take the road not taken - to reference one of my favorite Robert Frost poems.  We love the thrill of off-roading on a Polaris or four-wheeler on my family's farm.  A few weeks ago we had a blast exploring creek beds and trails.  My cheeks were sore from smiling so much!























Through the field and off to the creek!
















Found a few bridges to help our exploring!








The wide, open spaces and fresh air are good for the soul!











My kids are having fun taking these pictures and making scrapbooks.  They are also adding some of their observations to their "I Spy" notebook they made at the beginning of the summer. 

To make your own "I Spy" book, check out the following post:





The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference

(Robert Frost)

 

 

Here's to taking the road not taken!
