The Mouth of the World

In honour of Charles Lillard, who wrote about the logging camps of Centralia, I paid the town a visit two weeks ago, on my way to the mouth of the Columbia River at Astoria. They’re milling hardwoods there now. Presumably everything else has been cut down and is growing back as industrial stands of timber, not forests.

Sometimes you find mouths where you don’t expect them at all.
