Goold Road

20 Nov

We went out for a walk on Sunday.  It was a lovely day and we weren’t alone.

As we turned onto the road with the horses, there was another, older couple ahead of us.  And then, after we stopped to say hi to the fillies, they were even further ahead of us.  We figured they’d never go in the same direction as us.

But then we turned onto another road, and then onto Goold Road, and yep, there they were.

The gentleman was smoking a cigar as he walked. It smelled wonderful and, though yes, it is bad for your health,  Goold Road is a great cigar-smoking walking road.

Goold Road doesn’t have a bridge out like Spangler, but like White Bridge, it may as well have.  It’s infrequently used and wonderful for ambling.

And it comes out next to an alpaca farm.

What could be better than that?

    I love your walks in Columbia county–it’s so delightfully quiet and pastoral. I’m in Ulster so I get a bit of that…

    Thanks for taking me on a walk with you. My walks aren’t through such lush country, but you inspire me to write about them!

    Julia — Hi and welcome! Ulster must have some great roads for walking, no? Would love to read about them ;-)

    Toni — But your walks are great too! All walks are wonderful, really. So relaxing.
