More Than a Road

Apr 23.2012

A recent move has given me ample opportunity to spend time on one of my favorite roads in the Roaring Fork Valley- Watson Divide Road.  Traveling this road on foot has re-affirmed for me the power of simplistic rural detail and the refreshing presence of an endless vista.  My favorite detail can be found on the post and rail fence lining the road–simple in aesthetic, yet functional.  The migration corridor within which the road resides allows for elk grazing, deer bounding, and perhaps a coyote or two to conclude the journey. While walking the road, do not be fooled (wink wink) as this is not the Discovery Channel’s Animal Planet, it is a fulfilling experience that changes with every trip.
