During my first summer break from graduate school I road tripped with my parents on a route we travelled numerous times in my childhood. Our loop started in Northeastern Ohio and included Michigan and the Upper Peninsula, Illinois, Indiana and western Ohio. In the past the goal was to meet family in Wisconsin and to enjoy different locations along the way. This particular time, however, was a more melancholy trip. We reached the specific destination in Wisconsin with the intent to spread the ashes of our family who we visited so frequently in the past. These images are childhood memories trying to be recreated through adult eyes.
