Isolation: Martin Dies State Park, 2017

Location: Martin Dies State Park, off U.S. 190 near Jasper

Many places in East Texas are like worlds apart. Signs in many of our parks warn of alligators, largely because we people raised as city folk foolishly anthropomorphize beasts that long predated dinosaurs on the Earth. Nothing is more harmful to the alligator than convincing him what he previously thought was "dangerous food" is only "food". A deep disconnect fixes a chasm between two worlds.

When I saw this old pier it seemed almost allegorical of many such chasms between East Texas and the rest of the world.
