Michigan Memories - Winter Roads

These photos were taken by my grandparents in the '60s and '70s. I have memories of roads like these! While they are very beautiful to look at, it is not always great to travel on roads in these conditions. :-) All of these photos were taken around Gull Lake, Michigan.

Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know. 
His house is in the village though; 
He will not see me stopping here 
To watch his woods fill up with snow. 

My little horse must think it queer 
To stop without a farmhouse near 
Between the woods and frozen lake 
The darkest evening of the year. 

He gives his harness bells a shake 
To ask if there is some mistake. 
The only other sound’s the sweep 
Of easy wind and downy flake. 

The woods are lovely, dark and deep, 
But I have promises to keep, 
And miles to go before I sleep, 
And miles to go before I sleep.

  1. Oh, I LOVE these photos! Makes me cold just looking at them, but they are just so pretty. I think it is so neat that your grandparents took the photos all those years ago, and yet, they look fresh and new. I hope you and your family have a blessed Christmas season!

    1. Cheryl, I appreciated you comment the day I saw it. I'm sorry I didn't answer sooner. I've been sick most of this month and having eye trouble as well. A blessed New Year to you and yours.
