Martha over at Living Among Tourists threw down a challenge this week. And I quote:
"Today I offer a challenge for you to photograph your usual ride, the one that most illustrates the path most taken - the drudge, the glory, whatever it is that you see all the time on your way to work or play. What's the view?"
This morning, even though I was in the cage (standard operating procedure for my commute) I had the camera out and ready to take photos of my whopping three mile drive. The drive consists of a right turn, followed by three left turns and one more right turn into the parking lot. If I stop at the post office first I can extend it by two more rights and two more lefts.
My favorite part of the drive is along West Hills Road. A short section with a 25 mph twisty in it followed by a little hill.
This picture is heading west on West Hills - single twisty up ahead.....

Around the twisty and up the hill.

There you have it, my daily drudgery Monday through Friday. I won't bore you with the rest of it. You know, all two stop signs and four stop lights of it. It only takes me ten minutes maximum to get to work and that is through the OSU campus so it isn't too bad really.
The road I really wanted to get a picture of is the route we always take to go to Eugene, but I can't get down there until at least the weekend. At some point I'll put a photo up of the view. It is beautiful as we ride through the rolling foothills of Christmas Tree farms.
If you are up to the challenge and want to post up your road most traveled please do so and remember to visit Martha and leave a link in her comments section so that she knows who has participated.
