  1. Left or right? Depends on the time of day – left if it’s early enough to hike to the top for a view and get back before dark! ;o)

    • You’re almost dead on, Stacey. The left does go to a high place that I like to visit. The right goes many miles up the canyon before it crosses a divide.

  2. Or as Robert Frost once noted in his poem, The Road Not Taken :

    “. . . Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.”

    • I remember the poem, Chad. I nearly always like the one less traveled.

  3. Chad… same quote came to my mind when I saw that photo. Montucky… a choice to be made,.. which way did you go? I doubt you could lose either way!

    • Actually, Cedar, I took the right one… for a half mile then a different left turn to the Spring Creek trail head.

  4. For what it’s worth I would have taken the road on the left. 🙂 It’s better to hike upwards at first and then enjoy a hike downhill at the end of the day. Also I much prefer the road less traveled! Cheers to the road less traveled with only Montucky’s and a few critters tracks…. 🙂

    • This time I took the other, but the one to the left is one of my favorites. It is gated not far from the turn, then foot or horse only and gets into some excellent wildlife territory. And,as you mentioned, goes up very rapidly, leaving the nice, downhill hike back at the end of the day.

  5. I thought of the Frost poem, too, right away–a perfect illustration to accompany it. And I wonder which way you went, also.

    • I know that area very well and that the right road leads to four of my favorite trails. Had that been a new area to me I clearly would have taken the left one.

  6. Beautiful blue sky and the snowy crossroads…left or right… with the tall pines.

    • Hard to choose to stay inside by the fire with those roads calling!
