A Sight to See

Over five years ago I did a work exchange in Ordway, Colorado and I here I am again today. The skills, confidence, and experiences I have gained are priceless and I will always cherish my memories here; however, I value the people that made those memories most. Ordway is the “dying American town” and anyone can come to see what bad politics, a recession, and Wal-Mart has done to a once thriving American community. So, when y’all fly to Denver to smoke weed or are driving cross country; stop in Crowley County.

Traveling the U.S.A in 2016?
