The Road Home





This week I would like to share with you the beautiful scenery along the highway that we drive everyday. This particular stretch of highway goes up the hill that leads to the little community of Richardsville. Which is where I live.





The rock structures are on both sides of the highway in some areas and only on one side in other areas.


These pictures were taken in the afternoon when the trees cast their shadow on the highway.






With all the rain lately, the rocks have several small waterfalls running down them. This one was very small and doesn't show up in the picture.








But this one was flowing a bit more and I thought it was so pretty. I see this all the time and have wanted to stop and get pictures, so I finally did.





Isn't it pretty??














This week I have not only seen and enjoyed the natural scenery of the area, but have encountered a few animals along the highway.


These Ducks were waddling along on their merry way.







Mr. Turtle was taking his dear sweet time crossing the road.












And the little deer ran across the road in front of me, jumped the fence and were off into the woods.

They sure are fast. My daughter grabed the camera when we saw them and in just a few seconds they were out of sight. I'm suprised she even got a shot of them.



This stretch of highway is a favorite spot for the deer. I have seen them here many times. As I approach the area I am always on the look out for them, especially at night.


Hope you enjoyed the pictures and that you head over to Hey Harriet to check out what others have posted this week.

  1. Jeanette, Thank's for stopping by my blog. I enjoyed seeing pictures of your part of the country. How nice it must be to see that much wildlife as you travel the road. It has been stormy here in Kansas too, but nothing like the flooding that has plagued other parts of the country. Have a lovely Sunday. Mickie :)

  7. Western KY looks absolutely stunning! Not so hilly, yet not to flat, the interesting contours along the road home make it interesting. Not to mention the rocky outcropping and the turtles and ducks a cute sight. Ant that road looks almost glass smooth, unlike the potholes in New England. You have a beautiful view leaving or arriving home!

  8. That is one huge snapping turtle!

    MY BLINGLESS SHADOW

    A shadow’s an odd sort of thing;
    It might have a nose or a wing,
    A tail like a dog,
    A bump like a log,
    But one thing it has not is bling!
