A pleasant Sabbath Day stroll

Canada
June 18, 2016 7:51pm CST
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.

This could be one of our small country roads - complete with puddle!

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.

@koopharper I guess then the road will slowly become worse and worse over the years.

I very much like going for walks back in here. I do it all the time when the weather cooperates. We have a substantial looking camp but someday we'd like to live in a real house.

@koopharper I can understand, I surely appreciate living in a real house now that I am no more young.

Looks like many-a-country road I've travelled in the country with the possibility of seeing a deer or other wildlife- be glad to see your other pics too!

Heavily overgrown logging road splitting off. Passable on foot only. There a whole network of them hidden back in here.
Technically the road does go all the way through. Even with good off road skills you'll never make it without a four wheel drive that has good clearance.

Looks like it is a country /rural road? Isn't it hard to drive a car there because of the slippery mud?

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.

A shot up the driveway to one of the cottages near the start of our road.
It was lovely. I'm hoping the weather holds for awhile. After the rain we deserve it.
