Looming over the landscape

I dug up a photo from a November 2007, when Dave and I took a small road trip to Toledo one afternoon. We took Jefferson Avenue out of Detroit, which turns into River Road eventually, and followed that as far as we could before we got to I-75. Along the way, the Fermi II nuclear power plant is visible to the east. It’s almost a cliche to say it “looms,” and I’ve often wondered what it feels like to see the towers outside your windows or across your fields every day.

An hour or so later we reached Toledo and got a close look at the new Veterans Glass City Skyway, which I described in this post. That post has an image of the bridge, which I re-edited and posted on Flickr, too.


About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.
