I'm hearing strains of John Denver... take me home, country roads... to the place I belong... West Virginia... Oooops... West Texas would be more appropriate. ;) blessings ~ tanna

Sandra said...

i nearly swooned with joy, looking at that old dead tree. i do so love old dead trees. our neighbor paid good money to someone to come remove that stunning dead tree in her back yard that i posted about. made me sad.

Kerri said...

Country Roads.... Take Me Home!
I LOVE country roads too!

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Now that is the kind of roads I like. Away from the traffic and alone with the beauty of nature.

Gone Country said...

I love country roads! Hmmm, what a great idea for a name of a blog, hahaha! No really, I do love them and find myself getting anxious whenever I have to be on a city street. Bring on the country roads and the trees!

DJan said...

In a week I will be in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area to spend Thanksgiving with my family. Those pictures remind me of the terrain that looks very familiar around there, too. I can't wait!

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

Hi Tex, In the comments above, Jana said ... Who doesn't love a country road? I just couldn't think of a better comment. :) John

Michaele said...

It does make one wonder what is at the end of the road. But why think that far ahead - we will just enjoy the view. I love the tree tunnels.

Maria Luiza said...

muito lidas as imagens! lindo lugar!
Eu adorei! Beijos e lindo final de semana!

nene said...

love the arboreal look. I recall a customer from Texas north of San Antonio in Kerrvillecame to visit me when I was training soldiers with the military Hummer at the training center in South Bend Indiana home of AM General the manufaturer of the HMMV for our military. The customer was impressed by the size of our trees compared to those in the hills of Kerrville. Are the trees where your at the same size as there's?

Linda said...

Don't you just love dead trees? The live ones are beautiful, of course, but the dead ones have such grace in their naked limbs.

Don't ever fall for that "All roads lead to...." philosophy. It just ain't so. :)

Jan n Jer said...

I see a fence in the first shot! Very pretty landscape.

Anni said...

I love the whole concept of the quiet, tranquil surroundings these photos depict!! Texas is one beautiful state...

Sorry it's taken me so long to repay your visit from Tuesday/Wednesday...not home long enough to take the time to thoroughly peruse you blog posts!!

Felipa Monteverde said...

Adoro caminhos, estradas e árvores, tudo junto fica uma maravilha!
A árvore morta anda mantém a sua pose, digna de rainha...

Boa sexta-feira verde, beijo

Felipa Monteverde said...

Corrigindo: "a árvore morta AINDA mantém a sua pose..."

Birdman said...

Any sighting of John Denver around there.

Tricia Hays said...

More trees or more roads! heheheee

MTWaggin said...

I'm a big one for back roads and old snags are always a great capture (maybe cuz they don't move - hmmm). Nice job.

barbara l. hale said...

I love road pictures no matter where they lead. I guess that's the point. It doesn't matter where they lead but the possibility is there that they will lead somewhere wonderful.

Gail said...

Have you been in my neck of the woods??

I think I know that old tree.

I do love the old trees, full of character. They are gone but I often wish they could talk about all they had seen while living.

nic.b van es said...

wat een mooie omgeving wat een rust straalt dat uit.

Maple Lane said...

Lovely to go along for the ride!

bailey-road.com said...

All you need is a vulture perched at the top of that old tree.

Barb said...

Inviting us to explore.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Dirt roads that disappear into the woods have always intrigued me - what lies beyond the trees?

Red said...

Super post on country roads! you've just found another theme.
I've just come to notice that it's extremely flat in your area.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
All roads lead to more trees and one dangerous skeleton-tree. But when they fall, it is usually in a storm, after heavy rains when the soil gets soaked and loose.
Hugs to you,
Mariette

SweetMarie said...

I just love roads like this. I'm looking to live where there are roads just like that first photo. :)

Farm Girl said...

I love country roads! They look like the ones that go by my Dad's house.
I keep thinking I need to have my sister take pictures of the road and the barns so I could share them. Have a great weekend!

Sylvia K said...

I love the "squirrely " tree in the first two shots!

don said...

I like seeing all the kinds of trees along these interesting looks roads. That rugged old tree makes a good eye-catching subject.

Leave It To Davis said...

looks like you made it out to the sticks...should be some old falling down barns with trucks out there somewhere. lol

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

This makes me want to take a drive today. Beautiful images of the country, a place where my soul always feels refreshed.

Patty Woodland said...

Except for the flat it looks rather like here

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, If I did not know you were taking pictures of those TX roads, I would think you were in Eastern Tennessee! Very similar in looks to one another. Have a fabulously nice weekend!

Ana Mínguez Corella said...

Hi!!! Beautiful place .. very cool ... Greetings

Paula said...

Hi! I found you via your comment at Cottage Days and Journeys, in which you said you have relatives who live in Juneau! I live in Juneau (well, Douglas, actually) as well, and I'm curious to know who they are! We probably know each other, since Juneau is a pretty small town.

I love your blog - come by and visit me at Home In Douglas!

Ron said...

Country roads are so special. You sure have a lot of great trees where you live.

Black Jack's Carol said...

I, too, love country roads and your photographs really brought a feeling of traveling along them, maybe just a bit aimlessly before coming to that gorgeous sculpture of a dead tree.

Candy C. said...

I would love to wander down those country roads!! :)

Thanks for stopping, always.

That first one looks like a nice road to walk.

AllyJo said...

Wish I could articulate what I feel when I see your pictures. They are such a comfort. Not to mention lovely. You have a good eye for composition.

orchid said...

Dearest Theresa,
Oh, these pictures reminds me of the song "Country Road" I used to sing with my late brother♬♬♬ He taught me some parts of the
lyric of this song. Such a rich green, my friend! The roads definitely will "take you home".

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Love them all. Nice to get off the beaten track--though these are "beaten" naturally.

JM said...

Love country roads!

Brian King said...

I like the dead tree and the dirt road! Michigan used to have a lot of dirt roads when I was growing up. Not so many now, but there are still some. The water trucks wet them down in the summer.

Rose said...

You must like to travel the same kind of roads we pick out....

Crafty Gardener said...

Love that old tree in the first 2 photos.

Marissa said...

That old tree is pointing as if to tell drivers something.

MarmePurl said...

og good...now I've had my morning walk. Without even getting up.

Cheryl Cato said...

The twists and turns of country roads is a real draw for me too. Enjoyed your tour.
