My better half and I travel together for work. Our travels take us to places most people wouldn’t even notice. If my husband see a smoke stack in the distance, we search for the road which takes us there.
Along the way we notice things.
Like fields of dandelions outside the solar pit toilets in Central British Columbia. Solar pit toilets not pictured. 🙂
Molting elk in Alberta grazing in someone’s front yard.
Bears romping in fields outside of remote towns in northern British Columbia.
Buffalo roaming the side of the road in Wyoming.
Dams in out of the way places in Washington State.
A few weeks ago on our way to visit a paper mill, we noticed a road we passed many times without “seeing”. With extra time on our hands, we took the road. The “old” highway. We cruised north along Hoods Canal in Washington State.
Small communities. People waving from the side of the road. Thin Clouds. Sunshine. Blue water. Birds.
We drove into town earlier than expected and parked below this “ghost sign”.
You may have noticed my penchant for funny names. Which leads us to the town of Sequim, Washington. (Pronounced skwim, rhymes with swim.) Famous for their weather and lavender farms and Dungeness crab. We arrived at the tip of the Dungeness Spit.
The former home of the 3 Crabs Restaurant.
While exploring the countryside, we crossed Kitchen-Dick Road. How could I not notice that before!?! So many possibilities, so little time today.
The next time we visit Sequim, I will take a picture of the street sign. And if I can ferret out the story behind the name . . . you’ll be the second to know. It will not be not noticed again!
What is the strangest named road you’ve ever encountered?
