State of Decay

I paid a visit to Sand Hills Country, a lovely spot that time appears to have forgotten.

Sand Hills Country 001

The mansion on the hill is in ruins, its roof partially collapsed.

Sand Hills Country 003

The covered bridge still stands, but is ancient, potentially unsafe.

Sand Hills Country 004

The windows of the ware house are broken, the building open to the air, the "no trespassing" sign a feeble effort to deter the curious.

Sand Hills Country 005

The pumps in front of the gasoline station stand as sentries in a war long ended.

Sand Hills Country 006

And the tractor stands idle in the field of wheat. All around, the sand creeps in. Entropy is winning.
