One of my current projects involves visiting small towns - I love the driving, I love the research, and I love looking at a place I haven’t been before. So far I have been to Black Diamond, Roy, Cle Elum, Roslyn, Ronald, Skykomish, Sultan, Goldbar, Olalla, Purdy, Key Center, Home, Snoqualmie, Edison, La Conner, and some of the surrounding areas, of course.
Just a few things-
Driving down a road, fenced on both sides, surrounded by a military base.
A town that had to move everything, and is now divided by a landslide.
The graveyard containing victims of a doctor who cured patients by starving them to death.
The land of deep ditches and bald eagles.
Towns where huge new homes are being built by the hundreds (or thousands) just next to existing neighborhoods.
The best biscuits and gravy.
A McMansion with a view of an open working mine.
I look forward to visiting more towns, and eventually having more to show for it, and more to say about it.
