The Meandering Path

The Bike Path

I use this bike path on a daily basis. It is a shortcut between Jordbro and Västerhaninge. The road dates back to the Viking Era. It meanders through an old burial ground with 800 graves from 500 B.C, and a nature reserve called Gullringskärret. If you continue down the path you will see a horse farm.

I walk paths like this in Vermont all the time but alas we have no Vikings buried along the way...at least not to the best of my knowledge. Great shot, Steffe.

You are lucky that such a beautiful path is part of your days. Nice place, nice picture.

Walking in the woods in the summer. What better activity can one imagine?

Beautiful green place ... you almost wish you would be transformed to the past and see Vikings coming out of the woods. But then again, I'm glad the presence is much more peaceful, at least in this area and my part of the world.

I adore this shot, Steffe. There's something about meandering paths - the way they lead the eye. This is an especially beautiful photograph.

I ride my bike in green spaces in Melbourne every day, but this makes me yearn for the countryside..

It would be great to join you on one of your trips down this road.

It's an interesting area. A couple of thousand years ago when the first settlers arrived, this was the coastline. Today you will have to travel a couple of kilometres longer to get to the Baltic Sea. From this spot there are many choices if you want to go for a bike ride, and I have probably showed you twenty or so places over the years on this blog.Press here to see some of the latest.
