A pleasant Sabbath Day stroll

The weather was gorgeous today and I spent some time outside enjoying it. I took the camera with me. With all the rain that we've had everything is very green except for the mud. I walked from the four season road where we park during the winter all the way as far in as one might dare drive a regular automobile. The photo was taken at the entrance to our seasonal road looking in. We live a half kilometre further along. I took quite a few pictures so I might add some of them in the comments section. The day us drawing to a close now and I just got on here. Hope everyone has had a great day. I encountered a white-tail deer but couldn't get close enough to snap a picture. I was glad to see it because the population has declined somewhat in recent years because of a proliferation in the wolf/coyote crossbreed. The only other wildlife that I could get close to was the deer flies and they could have happily kept their distance like the Swallowtail Butterflies do. I did get a shot of the hoof print in the dirt.

The puddles and ruts quickly get worse. The road is not maintained by the province at all anymore. One of the local farmers has two small fields deep in there and he will drag something with the tractor that will smooth it out some.

At times it's impassable. During the winter we have to walk the last half kilometer because the snowplows don't clear it out. In the spring we have to wait for the mud to solidify otherwise we'll get stuck. The local farmer hasn't had to rescue my van once so I think I've been playing it smart.
