After my very, very long drive down from Mount St. Helens on remote Forest Service roads, I was quite happy to arrive in Carson, Washington. Granted, there isn’t much here, but Carson’s miniature downtown provided a good excuse to get out of the car and walk around for a few minutes. There are a handful of businesses that are open, including a good antiques store (the building in the middle of the photo above).
Yes, that really is a genuine flashing red traffic light at the 4-way stop in the center of town.
I wonder what kind of gifts you could get at a Cafe that also serves as a tackle shop? I guess we’ll never know, since it looked like this downtown Carson business went under, quite a while ago.
