With the temperature at 70 degrees before noon, Cliff informed me it was time for a motorcycle ride. We crossed the Missouri River, went through Richmond, and then took a back road we hadn't been on for a long time. We ended up in the town of Cowgill, Missouri.
We enjoy riding slowly through these off-the-beaten-path towns that obviously were once thriving little villages.
I try to imagine what life was like here, seventy-five years ago.
One thing for sure, the town has seen better days. If you check the wikipedia link, it says the average annual income for the town is $21,000.
This might have been the bank at some time, do you suppose?
We pass through many little podunk towns like this when we're riding the back roads. It makes me rather sad to see them in such a state of decay.
