Mini Challenge #321 Scenic trails and roads
It’s been a bit over 3 years since we’ve had something similar, so since I am planning a couple of fall trips that will include some day hikes, I decided that I also had my theme for the upcoming challenge.
When I’m hiking I usually take at least one “along the way” photo of the trail. I don’t always include them in the final exported photos of the trip, but I do keep them around to remind me of the experience of the hike. For trails, I will include unpaved, paved, boardwalk, stairs, garden paths, and pretty much anything else I may have missed. People, pets, and wildlife using the trails are fine. Urban sidewalks can make for compelling photos but I think the surroundings would have to be something special to qualify as scenic. For roads, I mostly want as stated in the title of the theme, roads through scenic vistas, preferably without much traffic. A car or two to emphasize traveling is OK, but no traffic jams. While I sometimes enjoy photos of headlight and taillight trails, that’s not really what I’m looking for in this challenge. Again, a specific photo with these features may work, but it would have to be something special (for example a single classic car in Monument Valley with taillight trails).
Here are a few examples:

I just realized, all my examples include fall colors, even the one with snow (it was October). That’s coincidence, not a requirement.
This mini will close at 9PM EDT Monday July 26.
