Picturesque Trestle Ruins

without comments

Unlike Europe and Asia, the United States allowed it’s vast, once dominant, train infrastructure to decay into obscurity.  Driving along Highway 75, in northern Illinois–a route pioneered by train tracks–I caught this sublime and hidden scene out of the corner of my eye.  Here is a momentary glimpse into the merciful, yet unrelenting way nature reclaims what once took such an enormous effort, by man, to build.  Thanks to my mom for having to awkwardly pull the car over on such a treacherous part of the highway.
