No Town

No Town | Near Rock Island, WA | 2011

More than 100 years ago planners laid down streets, alleys and key building sites for what would become the town of Columbia — at least on paper. Now this road to nowhere, veiled in spring rain or shimmery in summer heat, transports little more than grazing deer and my wandering imagination. I visit frequently, expecting to find a time rift or extra-dimensional portal. So far, it’s just an abandoned road … beckoning.
