This past weekend, I went back to my old city to do some work and visit friends…(Okay, it was more work).
On my way back, I was driving on the highway that I have driven on a million times…I pass this bridge that I just think is beautiful and picturesque…So, I decided to stop.
After navigating a couple of back roads, U-turns and a little walking…I got there, and I wasn’t disappointed.
The trail was silent and I spooked myself a couple of times with an unexpected whistle (I can’t whistle) and crunching of the leaves. I did hear gun fire in the distance, as well.
After I left the trail, I was driving along and realized that I had a unique opportunity to see the moon rise and the sun set. So, I attempted to take pictures. (No, your screen isn’t dirty. Those are bugs that have decided to grace the windshield.)
I also learned that it is never a good idea to drive and take pictures…
My detour was worth it in the end…Sometimes, detours are a good thing.
Have you taken a detour lately?
