Weekly Photo Challenge: The Road Taken

The theme of this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is THE ROAD TAKEN, in which we are to portray something along the way that touched or surprised us.

Last weekend we visited Caesars Head State Park in the mountains of South Carolina. In retreating from the summit…and the gorgeous view…we departed through this cleft in the mountain stone.


The cleft was natural, narrow, intriguing, deep (over twice my height) and not much wider than my shoulders.

    We have some narrow roads cut into the Tuffo around us, they were made by the Etruscans over 2.000 years ago so it is always thought provoking when we drive through them.


  3. The straight and narrow?
