This photo was taken behind the Ukranian Catholic Church in Centralia, Pennsylvania.  For me, this deserted path covered with the vibrant fall leaves was just another reminder of what the town has become.  I saw it as a ways to travel to the past and a hope, though ever fading, that the town would be able to return to what it once was.  Though that will never happen, there is always hope.

I wonder what this photograph means to others who do not have the connection to Centralia as I do.  Where does it lead them and why is it taking them there?
