As most know, a smartphone and GPS can get you anywhere these days. We moved off route to deal with some heavy traffic and route ourselves daily using the little Google walking man. When we look for small roads and short cuts the walking man is there and often full of surprises. Today was a reprieve from the rain of recent days. Ed & I started out at different times and did the same route in the beginning, but as we got into our walks we both started tweaking short cuts and discovered some beautiful back roads most cars couldn’t drive these days. Their existence is due to an earlier day when the populace was spread thinner across the land … And more of them were walking! Here’s a few views and wonderful surprises from my google maps journey today.
