the road not taken

I was on my way home and this scene stood before. I was wondering at how the snowy scene had changed just in a matter of days. The two paths also reminded me of Robert Frost's poem. Any ideas as to which path i took... ;-)

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
- Robert Frost

You took the road to the right. You were going home not to the playground.

Na, I think you took the road to the left. Great photo. It's very interesting to look at and wonder where each road leads.
