A young man – a cowboy, if the lariat looped on the bottom of this cross is a clue – died along the highway, just south of town, where the road crests a slight rise and then curves to the left.
From the back, it looks like someone left a heart on the cross, but from the front, you can tell it’s a pair of angel wings. I liked that ambiguity.

This is the same location I’d photographed in 2015, but nothing looked the same. I think this indicates even more fatalities at this particular intersection, but it might also mean that grieving families are still visiting and adding to their loved one’s memorial.
