The road taken

I look down this path and find myself channeling Robert Frost.  This path leads to the northwest section of Ives Fen Preserve.  What if I hadn't taken that country road all those years ago?  What if I hadn't stopped and walked down that two-track to see what was there?  I would have missed an awful lot of walks along this path.  It crosses a higher point of land that projects into Ives fen.  So many of us have walked it on invasive removal days, on days looking for images and specimens, on days just enjoying life.  So much has followed from those first turns.  What a difference!
