Endless line of dried sludge as far as the eye can see. Literally. I believe we've walked straight along here for about 25 minutes, and we still can't see the end of it.
My sister and I's shadows...
The trees caught the sunset
Apparently you're not supposed to stand under these... Huh, who knew?
Hmm... Way overexposed, but I wanted to show the extant of the damage
Some greenery has grown up along the devastated strip, but most of it is still dried sludge
A farm road wanders off to the side...
Shining strands of power lines...
Having fun :-)
Isn't this fire hydrant just amazingly adorable for some reason?
Where the green things end...
And as for the upcoming festivities, the first one is pretty much here! Tonight, my immediate family (minus my dad who's sadly away on a business trip :-( ) is celebrating Thanksgiving. We're cooking an almost entirely organic, harvest themed meal, with homemade bread, roasted carrots, potatoes and onions, meatloaf for the meat eaters, and I believe soup as well.
As for the other upcoming festivities, well, that's something I'm really looking forward to. :-) Since Halloween is so disgustingly commercialized, and I feel like I'm a bit too old for trick-or-treating, I decided to celebrate Samhain, a Pagan holiday celebrating the final harvest, and also remembering the dead. Some historians also believe that Samhain was the Celtic newyears. So, with the help of my sister and at least one friend, we're going to put together a small celebration. It will be cool. :-)
