__________ was here
By the time we reached the pull off all eight of our hearts were near exhausted by our excitement. Each of us had given our imaginations full stage to dream up whatever we might hope to find out there. From our entry point we couldn’t see into the deserted town, only across the roof tops of the abandoned homes. These stark remains still run along the sweeping landscape. With no time to spare, we leaped from the van, strapped in and took one last moment to prepare our eyes for what was before us. At a second glance we realized we were atop a half buried child’s playground. The corroding swing set, slide and seesaw greeted us to the for-ground of our imagination. With our tips down, we pointed it into the marooned land.
