I left home to dump the garbage Sunday afternoon, carrying only my phone and driver’s license. The dumpster’s several hundred feet from the house and after making my “deposit”, I decided to keep driving. When I reached Hwy 19 a mile and a half later, I made a right turn. A mile later, I made a left turn at the northernmost entrance of Adams Cemetery Road.
At the next intersection, I made a right turn onto Power Line Road. Approaching Free Run Church Road, I opted to pass it because it led to the highway, and I wasn’t quite ready for my little adventure to end. So, at the next intersection of dirt roads, I made a right onto Little Pond Road. In search of the little pond, I drove that road for a couple of miles until it intersected with Hwy 126. I made a u-turn across the highway and headed back down Little Pond Road. When it intersected again with Power Line Road, I made a left turn in the opposite direction of Free Run Church Road.
At the next intersection, I made a left onto County Road 83 and drove it until I reached Bo Weevil Road. A mile or two later, after having made pics of fields, streams, and ponds all along the way, seeing a father teaching his son to drive a 4-wheeler on their dirt road, and passing a farmer plowing his field under an expansive blue sky, Bo Weevil Road intersected with Hwy 19. I didn’t double back this time, though, but instead made a left turn and headed in the direction of home…but not before making that left turn onto Free Run Church Road.
The field on the left of Free Run Church Road was such a lush green that the yellow flowers made a strikingly beautiful contrast. I got out for a closer shot of the field and what’s left of Free Run Church across it.
At the end of my drive down Free Run Church Road, I made a left back onto Power Line Road, a right onto Adams Cemetery Road, then a left onto Hwy 19. I was hoping to get a shot of the pond on the left a few hundred feet down the highway, but I only slowed, looking for those elusive cranes. Seeing none, I headed on home.
As I traveled those dirt roads that Sunday afternoon, Rodney Atkins’ song ‘Caught Up in the Country‘ played on the radio. I adopted it as the day’s theme song.
