About Exit Islands
Have you ever been off a cloverleaf or an exit off a big interstate or highway and noticed that large chunk of real estate that is sitting idle in the middle of the cloverleaf. This land is usually owned by the state or whoever controls the road and either contains organized plantings or is completely wild.
Most of the time this land sits vacant and is ripe with wilderness that rarely sees foot traffic. There are of course those unfortunate times when the roads commission needs to do road work and then proceeds to store all their road equipment there. It is their space after all.
This group is dedicated to these untouched wild spaces. Be careful getting to them, there will likely be no parking available and plenty of speeding traffic near by.
In deference to my mom, I should mention that the idea of this pool came from her. She has always been intrigued by the wilderness in Exit Islands.
Expectations: I am not a big fan of rules, but I feel like I will need to clarify to avoid off-theme posts. So here goes:
 The shot should include the highway in reasonable proximity, so that it is easy to tell that it is taken of one of these islands.
 The subject is the island not the highway, so be creative, try to include the island in the majority of the frame.
 Please do your best to name the location of the photo. A suggestion might be: Exit # on [Name/Route Number of Road]. A city/state might also be helpful.
 To be decided ... I may add more rules as I see some of your photos.
~~ As always, have fun. I try to.
