Palmer Junction in Early September
One of the main rural roads out of town is Palmer Junction Road; it runs north for more than 20 miles. The unusual thing about this rural road is that it's paved. (The reason for that is a fish hatchery where spring chinook salmon are raised and released.) Driving this road is a good way to spend an early evening in late summer, when it's too hot to do anything else. The light was strange because of the smoke from forest fires.
