You encounter a bridge along your path, do you cross or turn around and go back to the familiar?

Tonight we take a short journey down a path and as with all journeys decisions have to be made. Do you go forward and see what lies ahead? Or do we turn around and go back to the familiar? Really when you think about all of our “paths” have the same questions but choosing to go forward can be rewarding. On this journey we encounter a bridge, so the question arises do we cross or turn around? Well I like to think I’m the person that crosses to see what’s on the other side. What type of person are you?

As you can see in the snow there are tracks. But how many ventured to cross the bridge ahead?

It looks as though some ventured across but did they see the beautiful scenery from the bridge?

Lets continue on and see whats on the other side.

From the looks of the snow no one made the complete journey across the bridge to the train station. What a shame that they turned back before seeing how things turned out. The view was great the whole way across but this journey doesn’t end here. I have to, as all of the others, turn back around because my vehicle is parked on the other side.

If you never cross the bridge you will never know what is on the other side.

Today in the blistery wind and snow, I decided to visit the Petersburg Toll House located in Addison, Pa. The toll house was built in 1835 from the native stone in the area. It was referred to as gate number one as it was the first toll house after crossing the line between Maryland and Pennsylvania. The tolls collected were used for maintenance of the road and to pay the toll collector who lived in the toll house. Toll houses were typically built about 15 miles apart on the National Road. #2eightphotography
