I can't help but wonder what is significant about these dates,
and why they were engraved on these stone structures.
Have they been there this long?
Was this the route of a train?
This is the foundation of a bridge that crosses the origin of the Little Wabash River.
Located just outside of Mattoon, I pass it on my way home.
This evening I had just driven through a hard downpour where the temperature at the northern edge of Mattoon was 81 degrees and 71 degrees by the time I got to the other side of Mattoon and the other side of the storm.
As I passed by the little bridge, I noticed how high the water was compared to most days,
and how blue the sky was when minutes before I could barely see to drive.
Spring in Illinois...
