Desire Lines

IMG_2669“A desire line can be a path created as a consequence of foot or bicycle traffic. The path usually represents the shortest or most easily navigated route between an origin and securedownloaddestination. The width of the path and its erosion are indicators of the amount of use the path receives. Desire paths emerge as shortcuts where constructed ways take a circuitous route, or have gaps, or are lacking entirely.”

So here are a few pathways & shortcuts to some places I find useful, desirable and distracting. Im starting with a few that are useful starting points and I will add more as I discover more through the blog. But for now, please enjoy meandering through these links
