The roads of Ascension begin from the Dead River then roll out to historic German Valley. The ghosts of Saxons dare me onward…
Upward the road she goes. From here the pave’ heads higher- Beacon Hill, Middle Valley, Zellers all loom…then undulating down into the Valley of ‘Long’ once more.
The afternoon sun, once hopeful now fades- as I ride into the fabric of Fall. Oranges, Reds, and Gold leaves that so weave- this Autumn-Day tapestry.
