....Take Me Home.
Just a couple snaps in VERY poor lighting conditions of the road that leads us to our new home, (in which we hope to move into within the month) :fingerscr

We were just out in the area a couple of weeks ago and took a drive down highway 13 and just loved it. Great old log church at one spot. These photos definitely bring back the feel of the area to me.

Loving these full on Autumn shots! What a cool road to ride a bike on!

Thanks all, and only PP done was to back off the highlights, as the fog made the light even worse for these.
Def a fun road to bike on MA. Would be even more fun in a rally car. It is actually 8+ km off the beaten path on a road like this all the way to the house. Kind of funny when some of the contractors/builders get back there and ask, "Where is the hydro?"
Greg, if you went down #13 I sure hope you stopped in and walked some of the Torrance Barrens, and if so would love to see some pics. As for the log Church, we have one at the corner of our property. Built in the 1800's and it is open all the time with a guest book for all to sign. Would not believe how many from overseas have visited this little Church. We can hear them ringing the bell from the house actually, even though it is a good 600 ft away.
Link to the Church below. Sorry don't have any of my own yet. (I know. YES us Rednecks do live in a place called "Bear Cave")

that is absolutely beautiful in the fall, but if you are prone to allergies, it appears to be the threshold of hell....

Beautiful pics btw...

Congrats on the new place. If the road leading to the house is this beautiful, I would love the see the house! Your eye for nature photography is fanstastic. I always enjoy your images :)

Thank you very much Matt, and Missy.
House is not elaborate at all. Just a cottage style Banff model sittin' on a big ole piece of granite in the woods. Will have to get you out this way next summer Missy. We are going all off-grid also.

Nicely done HBG for such poor lighting. I think my preference is the second one.
I will have to venture down that road sometime on one of my trips to or from my sister's place in Huntsville. Probably after the winter as I don't have winter tires (not exactly needed very often in Mississauga)
