Nature Walk: Country Roads
Country roads that crisscross much of America are vital link to rural folks who live and work the land to produce food and fiber. They also provide opportunities to view wildlife and plant communities away from heavy traffic. Nowadays most are graveled or covered with crushed rock. They are often passable after a heavy rain, unlike one hundred years ago when they were dirt, rutted and slick after even a light rain. The next time you drive down a rural road be thankful for the natural systems that nurture life.
When was the last time you took a country road to get to your destination? Did you see anything interesting or unanticipated?
