Mile 149, Wild Cherry Avenue, George, Washington State.

George, Washington is my favorite place name. The dismal nature of George adds to it’s strange appeal. It is basically a glorified truck stop with a distinctly dust bowl feel to it, but it never gives in. It is home to The Martha Inn, which is one of the greatest road cafes to be found. And only in George would you find Wild Cherry Avenue.
