Title:  BN Station sign
Description:  Adrian is 10 miles east of Ephrata and where the ex-NP CW Branch crossed over the ex-GN main by bridge. In the 80's(?) the CW branch was shortened to end at Coulee City and from Coulee City to Adrian was abandoned. The CW branch from Connell once was connected to Adrian but that is history too. Nice spot to take pix.

Description:  In the early 1900's, Wilson Creek was the 1st division point west of Spokane. Wilson Creek was also a busy hub for cattle loading. Wenatchee ended up being the division point over time. I would vote Wilson Creek as one of the most desolate places on Earth.
