Day 83 - The Scary Road - 282 to go

The caption could just as easily been,
You take the high road 
and we'll take the low road.
It was Tommy our GPS that took us on this 
high road goat track
when we could just as easily taken 
a modern faster road to our destination.
But that would not have been so exciting!!

Look very closely at this image.
We travelled the very scary road that you see
leading from the lower right side.
Room with only one car except for the occasional passing garages.
I didn't notice when I took this picture
that below on the river level was carved
a narrow pathway that allowed beasts of burden
to haul barges along this river in the Dordogne.

You should try getting lost and ending up on roads like this on a motorcycle - very very scary !!

I am enjoying your photo tour.

Thanks Jean - I was starting to think no one was looking. But then again isn't blogging a personal diary in a way.
