An Ode To Roads

Canada. Roads. The two go hand-in-hand. Since arriving in Canada I quickly became privy to the fact the fastest and most efficient way of getting around is, by far, driving, which, unfortunately for me, I cannot do; and when one relies on a bus service which runs for only three hours in the morning and three again in the evening, well, let’s just say going to the local Wal-Mart for a weekly food shop is akin to an episode of Supermarket Sweep.

Roads? Where We’re Going We Don’t NEED…Roads

Actually, we do. A key factor in the aforementioned issue is everything being so far apart in general – and with the population-to-land ratio of Canada being hugely in favour of land, a three-hour drive is basically a walk in the park for these fine folk. And that leads me back to my initial point of interest in this snap – ROADS. In my mind, I sound like Bubba in Forrest Gump because there are long roads, short roads, winding roads, roundabout roads, steep roads, bumpy roads and, that – that’s about it.

Anyway, one thing I actually like about the roads here are the impressive trick they manage to play on us mere mortals by coming across as being almost infinite in their span; and, more often than not, the wonderful scenery which tends to accompany these beautiful stretches of land. This snap was taken just around the corner from my house – and despite the recent rain giving way to a tirade of slushy crap that I have to trawl through on a daily basis, it certainly makes for a visually appealing streak down the centre of this road.
