Elgin, Illinois was once a timekeeping and industrial marvel as home to the Elgin National Watch Company, and the Elgin Tower Building stands as a reminder of a time when winding up a pocket watch was something respectable men did.

“Just one more stop,” I said, apologizing to the family as I pulled onto the shoulder of the road. The fence. The barn. The poofball weeds. The clouds. The fading sun.

Then the road turned to gravel, the plain turned into a steep hill, and I suddenly realized I should have rented an SUV or a Subaru … Continue readingMontana Fields
