USA – Snaps from the Low Down Adventure
Everytime I think about this year’s STMT X USA sourcing trip, I remember the sound of wheat rustling in the wind. Haunting, a gang of rattlesnakes headed our way. It was beautiful.
For an entire day, we didn’t pass another car on the road. I’m talking 5+ hours of driving. We stopped often and stood in the middle of the road – swallowed by massive wheat fields as far as your eye could see, casting an incredible golden glow for miles and miles. It was endless. It was like looking out into an ocean, where the horizon line marks the end. Instead of water, it was wheat. And you know what I thought while standing there, swallowed in the greatness? Amber m’thr f’in waves of grain.
Yup. America the Beautiful.
