Weekly Photo Challenge: The Road Taken


wick-house

I no longer live near one of my favorite “roads” But when I do visit Jockey Hollow National Park, I am always surprised by the vista of a narrow roadway winding past an historic house from the American Revolution days. This time it was the fall colors of the trees that have grown around  the Wick house. In the summer the dense foliage gives the sense of intimacy. And the cold winter snow takes me back some 250 years to the time when General George Washington and his troops camped before crossing the Delaware River and ultimately defeating the British to win independence for the 13 colonies.
