Road Cut

Road Cut | Chelan Falls, WA | March 2020

Essentially the road curls along a wide ledge sliced into solid rock. As I marvel at the cut’s workmanship — precise, tidy — I’m also keenly aware that this high-up highway traces the fine line between cruising carefree and veering into the void. Some drivers would relax into the moment and enjoy the scenery. But, as I do most days, I focus on life’s centerline and follow it to a wide spot where I can loosen my grip and steer clear of the heebie-jeebies. .
