One of the things I love most about going to our farm in The Great Piney Woods is going up the old dirt road to get there. I never understood about dirt roads before -- how they can become like corregated cardboard after a rainfall, or how the dust from the road can cover the tree leaves and vines along the side of the road until it almost looks like snow. After a trip up that road, I can now understand the meaning of "getting left behind in the dust". The path to our eden is about 5 miles up a winding, twisting, old dirt road which is both beautiful and challenging... but the challenge makes the adventure even sweeter.
