Wonderland Trail 

In the summer of 2013, I took a road trip that began in New Orleans and finally wound its way into the mountains of North Carolina, ending at the abandoned summerhouse of my grandparents. Their home, which I hadn’t visited since childhood, resides on the very road for which this series is named.

I view this project as a love letter to my grandparent’s mountain home (soon to be sold), the memories I have from there, as well as a memento of all the towns I visited on the way to our reunion. Consider this series laced with a heavy dose of childhood wonder and nostalgia.

Welcome to Wonderland Trail.
