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.

  1. Autumn In The White Carpathians
  2. Rhododendron Laden Path, Mount Rogers, Virginia, USA
  3. Spring In Hallerbos Forest, Belgium
  4. Autumn Path In Kyoto, Japan 
  5. Autumn Path
  6. Bamboo Path In Kyoto, Japan
  7. Hitachi Seaside Park Path In Japan
  8. Dark Hedges In Ireland
  9. Winter Forest Path, Czech Republic
  10. Path Under Blooming Trees In Spring

Where there are wolves, there are ravens. Ravens follow wolves around a lot, mostly because they just seem to like them. They aren’t known to follow other predators and they prefer to eat with the wolves instead of alone. Source

wait are you telling me that wolves keep ravens as petscause this is the most goth thing ever since My Immortal

It would be an easier way for the raven’s to get food. And I bet the wolf doesn’t mind the companionship either.

it’s mutualism! Ravens circle ungulate herds and wolf packs, wolves see them, find the animal faster, kill the animal and open up the carcass(which ravens can’t peck through), and then the ravens eat and the nice juicy bits.
oh, and the pet anology is back-assward. ravens play with wolves. and more importantly, wolf pups. you know how animals raised together from a young age are super tolerant of one another? ravens exploit that to get better access to carcasses. 

yeah i was gonna say it sounds more like the ravens are keeping the wolves as pets

This is an interesting case of human language parameters (or, anyway, English language parameters) influencing the tone of a neutral fact. The intimation of an owner/pet relationship is the result of a species who hasn’t been anywhere but top of the food chain in living memory, and for whom creatures of the wild have long since been tamed and house-broken.
However, ~500,000 years ago, when early humans were first emerging from Africa, we developed a similar relationship with wolves. It’s theorized that humans and wolves, both being highly social pack hunters, noticed the similarity in their hunting styles and quickly learned the benefit of a creature on the hunt.
This is one of my favorite images of prehistoric man, and one that doesn’t appear much in media- wolf teaching man, through action, of the habits and strategies necessary to take down the megafauna of the time. Man and wolf as equals in a world of giants, hesitantly friendly when time permitted. Before we were the masters of the world, we were just another animal. These sorts of mutualistic relationships are more common in nature than one might expect, but that’s entirely because we approach it from a human exceptionalist perspective.

((Hehe, it did. “Hey Tess, i used google to chat with you like this” so yes it was correct :D ))

Good, sure I have to use Google, but I like to talk to people in their language from time to time if English isn’t their first

((Hehe thanks ^^ I  have had English for a subject for 10 years now and im still learning..))

Yeah it does take time to learn English due to all of our rules. But from what I’ve read you’re going great

((Yeah, with past tense and such can get a bit confusing at times, and thank you ^^ Im doing my best to get A’s and B’s. which i actually get *cough cough* ))

I think the more you talk with English speakers like this, the better you’ll get
