Here is perhaps one of the most lonesome, two-lane roads on the western side of the Great Divide. Matthew shot this view on the Camas Prairie road on our way back from the small town of Hot Springs. I always experience a singular, isolated feeling when I travel this narrow ribbon of a road. It is a sensation that isn’t completely pleasant but not entirely unpleasant either. I imagine myself living here, trying to scrape a living; wholly surrounded by wind and the mountains. There isn’t much to stop the wind in this slender little valley and the dried grasses and clouds speak endlessly in a strange language. “The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G. K. Chesterton
