Making memorable images

Into the backcountry

Backcountry 1040 copyright

We drove farther into the backcountry as the sun was setting. We were going toward the fish hatchery, and the road kept getting narrower and narrower. I grew up in Wisconsin and know the hazards of driving in snow. When the road started curving and being covered with snow, I said, “turn around!” The road kept diminishing, like a tunnel through the walls of snow pushed up by the plow. We had to back down from a serpentine climb. Finally, we got back to the camp where we’d seen the creek, and were able to back in and use their driveway to turn around and go back to the main highway. The scenery was worth it, though! 😉

  1. Good for you. It’s good to get off the beaten track every now and again. Makes life interesting.
