When I saw that the theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge was alleys, driveways, parking lots and dirt roads, I planned to go to Snohomish to take pictures of some of the alleys in the historic residential area. I’ve always been kind of fascinated by alleys, for some reason. Maybe it’s because they’re kind of an old-fashioned thing and I’ve always loved old houses. And maybe I like the idea of being able to hide my car behind my house so no one will know I’m home. Either way, because of my nearly every day last week migraines, I didn’t get out to lurk in the alleys behind people’s homes. So, I have to settle for sharing the dirt roads in the tulip fields, which is really no hardship.
Some of the dirt roads made me feel like tip toeing because they were muddy. Even though the ground looked solid, it was very squishy in some places.
Looking east, are the hills that are so familiar to me. Just another thing I didn’t appreciate when I lived in the Skagit Valley!
I tried to get Don and Smarty to pose for me on one road but Smarty wouldn’t sit down or even hold still for more than five seconds. He was really hyped up and wanting to go, go, go the whole time. He must have really been a handful when he was a young dog.
After the parking area closed, the dirt road on the edge of the fields became a place for people to gather and talk.
After this experience, I’ve decided I like dirt roads just as much as alleys. 🙂
