On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions. From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
On the Road will continue, but it will be forever Alain’s.
Good morning everybody,

Enjoy the day and celebrate the daily reduction in ever-shorter days; before you know it, the Solstice will be here and we can begin increasing daylight in pursuit of Spring.
