Winter Aliens Part II

Some winter landscapes from the last alien expedition.

 The road goes ever on and on...
 ...down from the door where it began,
 Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
  Pursuing it with eager feet,
 Until it joins some larger way
 Where many paths and errands meet.
 And whither then? I cannot say.*

Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate,
And though I oft have passed them by,
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.**
* & ** From The Lord Of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien.

You need some fresh snow. That brown sludge on the road ain't pretty. ;)

But the rest of the landscape is.

We're getting hit with SUN. Warmth. I can live without the pretty white stuff for a while. :)

Your photographs suit Tolkien's poem.
I can live without the pretty white stuff too :-) Snow is fine if you don't need to get anywhere.

Carla, agreed. Pretty to look at, travel, not so great...
