Description 'O, ye'll tak' the high road and I'll tak' the low road...', an excerpt from the chorus of the Scottish tune 'Loch Lomond'. One of several legends has it, that this song is about two of Bonnie Prince Charlie's men, captured and left behind in Carlisle after the failed rising of 1745. The song appears to be written by one young soldier to his sweetheart. He was to be executed, the other released. The Spirit of the dead soldier traveling by the 'low road' would reach Scotland before his comrade, struggling along the actual road over high, rugged country. This photograph was taken on County Road 326 in Rusk County, Texas.This image is COPYRIGHT REGISTERED~~ALL RIGHTS RESERVED~~MCN:C6UXP-M89RM-BKJ68
