Roadside Pullout

Roadside Pullout | Washington Highway 155 | July 2019

Landscape Week | I remind myself: Stop and step from the car when geology looms so large. Windshields diminish the wondrous. Stand at cliff edge and stretch — arms open to the sky, mind open to magnificence. Those buttes aren’t gonna ooh-and-ahh at themselves, y’know.
