For me, there's nothing quite like driving down an unfamiliar (and hopefully unnamed) dirt road. They're all over Cape Cod, these roads, and sometimes lead to great, out-of-the-way painting spots. I found this one as a result of taking a wrong turn or two (sometimes referred to as "getting lost") in Wellfleet. This particular road meandered through thick woods for a half mile or so with no real painting prospects. I was looking for a place to turn around when the view suddenly opened up... to this.
