Yesterday was gorgeous. The rain clouds parted, the sun shone bright, and the temperature was a balmy seventy degrees amidst the fall colors. How could I sit in the dungeon of a class room that has no windows in the basement of the college for a full six hours on a day such as that? I couldn't. So as soon as I completed the obstetrics test that made my gut crumble and my head ache I ran out the doors and into the freedom of the fall skies.
For hours I drove over hills and through woods taking so many photos my camera's 8GB memory card was filled to the brim. With the window down I felt as free as I ever had. The thoughts of the test and school and all my other looming responsibilities were forgotten. The open road tends to do that to a person...
I have a habit of picking up my camera and snapping photos at various times while I am driving. Fortunately the roads are less traveled and being stopped dead in the middle of them doesn't cause much of a hinderance.
These are just a handful of those photos that I just have barely begun to sort and edit. It is now pouring rain. The remnants of some tropical weather system is bearing down on much of the East Coast and with all the wind and rain it is taking the last bit of fall colors. I couldn't have made a better decision than to lose sleep and forgo class in order to travel the roads of the Kingdom.
