The Road Not Taken
By Robert Frost

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.

We hope you enjoy this cache as much as we enjoyed putting it together. Please follow established trails most of the way to the cache. Off-trail hiking is discouraged as it negatively impacts the environment.
Special thanks go to the Parks and Recreation Section of the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources for permission to place this cache in Kanawha State Forest.
