Mile 594, Detour, Leaving Butte, Montana.
Driver: Mom & Dad. Returning home from Uncle Stevie’s 50th Birthday. Spring 2011.
Butte is not nearly such a somber place as you would think from this video. But it does have an inherent gravity. I am drawn to it like a magnet.
I made it 4 years ago using Holga shots of Butte, music by my friend Bill Herzog, and the poem The Aliens by Charles Bukowski.
