Photo Adventure - The Soo Paw

It's a dark night.  The moon won't rise for another couple of hours.  Out on a rural highway an oasis of light appears to the weary traveler.  But look at that sign!  Have we gone back to the '50s?

In a way, you have!  The Soo Paw motel has stood here for at least 60 years, and this sign has been here for most, if not all, of that time.

While visiting with family out in Nebraska, I headed down the road one night to this spot on Nebraska Highway 25.  When I came past the motel on my way in a couple days earlier things appear to be in better repair than some other trips.  When I get there this evening there are trucks and pickups parked in front of most of the doors.  Must be the new grain plant down the road.

Enjoy these images from the past!
