Opposites by Trail’s Edge

Weekly Photo Challenge: “This week, make two opposing elements come together (or clash in dissonance) in one photo.”

The weather this week has been beautiful, save for one rain event. Blue skies, sunshine, a few clouds here and there…

Being on vacation made it easy to get Kona in the car on Wednesday and take a bike ride on the nearby Wiouwash trail. This trail is named for the counties of its existence: Winnebago, Outagamie, Waupaca and Shawano. I biked a 10-mile swath of the first two counties, which stretched past farm field, green-leafed woods, green ponds and cattails, native flowers and purple clover.

Purple clover has been out in full force this past week, so I had to stop and capture its beauty at the edge of the trail, along with the opposing elements of wood post and wire fence. If only I had blog-o-smell, you could take a whiff of the wonderful odor that belongs in a perfume bottle. That is, if your allergies don’t object.

    That looks like a perfect place to ride. Trying to imagine the fragrance (while you’re working on the blog-o-smell interface. Our office closed at noon, but were under heavy T-storm threat.

      It’s a great place to ride, Dan. Only 15-20 minutes to get to one of the trail’s park and ride areas. Very convenient.

    How neat that the name of the trail is a combo of the names of four counties. and keep working on that blog-o-small, would ya?
    Looks like a lovely day on the bike!

      Many of the State trails are named that way. Makes it a bit easier to remember them. Yeah, I’ll keep working on the blog-o-smell, but don’t hold your breath. I’m not that tech savvy!
