The road less traveled by – 49 Palms Oasis Trail

Posted in Family, and Outdoor Adventures

The Road Less Traveled
49 Palms Oasis Trail, Joshua Tree National Park, CA

In part one of 49 Palms Oasis Trail, I showed personal images from our journey as well as trail details. In part two, I’m sharing landscape photos from the hike. This trail reminded me of the poem by Robert Frost, so I thought I’d share the poem with the photos.

49 Palms Oasis Trail, Joshua Tree National Park, CA

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both

49 Palms Oasis Trail, Joshua Tree National Park, CA

And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

49 Palms Oasis Trail, Joshua Tree National Park, CA

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim

49 Palms Oasis Trail, Joshua Tree National Park, CA

Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

49 Palms Oasis Trail, Joshua Tree National Park, CA

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

49 Palms Oasis Trail, Joshua Tree National Park, CA

Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

49 Palms Oasis Trail, Joshua Tree National Park, CA

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:

49 Palms Oasis Trail, Joshua Tree National Park, CA

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
