Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked

Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.

Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!

I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.

Extraordinary people look at something and see three things, and the average person sees only one. John could see ten, and he was able somehow to put them all together. He housed in himself, under one roof, all the contradictions. He was a man of action, but also a dreamer. He was teeming with feeling, emotional, yet extremely intelligent. There are revolutionaries who want to tear down and make something fresh. Then there are the old-fashioned, those who see the wisdom in the past. John saw both. He was both. A complex man—he had antennae like Proust, but he was a competitor like VInce Lombardi. He was a wild animal, but at the same time the family was central to his universe. These are times when it’s easy to be pessimistic. But if the tribe can produce somebody like John, there’s still hope. — Peter Falk, Just One More Thing
