Welcome

“I had crossed the line. I was free; but there was no one to welcome me to the land of freedom. I was a stranger in a strange land.”~H Tubman

A 2 Guns Welcome
Welcome to Two Guns, AZ, abandoned from its Route 66 heyday past.

I did feel a bit like a stranger in a strange land here with no one else around, and everything abandoned;  it was rather eerie. My desire to capture images propels me at times to do things I might not ordinarily do….like walk around in a place like this and endure a bit of fear.

Two Guns has quite an interesting story even before its more modern Route 66 past as a tourist trap and campground and you can read more about that from http://www.ghosttowns if you are so inclined:

Given time and it will all be cleared out and maybe become another shiny, new casino or something or other. That idea was drilled home to me just yesterday; a favorite little shack that I pass by often was being disassembled to make way for something new. I had the idea of doing next year’s holiday card with this shack as the backdrop (with a cowboy tumbleweed snowman;  I bought the props and all!) but it never really snowed this winter. Wasn’t it cute?

Now I’ll have to find another location for Tumbleweed Cowboy 😦
