here's a shot of essentially the entire city of Wakeman, facing east. As you can see, it's still quite small. Population is about 7,000 at this point.

Here's a few more shots from downtown Wakeman:

This is facing east along South Market Street near 5th Avenue, looking at the Library and Post Office.

And a mosaic of a portion of downtown, mostly centered along Market Street (which is the "main drag" through downtown), facing west, between 10th and 6th. (My first attempt at this sort of thing . . .)

A few other shots from around Wakeman:

This is looking south, down South 22nd Avenue toward Wakeman Boulevard (Hwy 24/89 multiplexed). As you can see, suburbia is starting to enroach on farmland.

This is just west of downtown, a residential area. The major thoroughfare toward the bottom of the picture is South Gilmour Street.

And here's a few shots along South 11th Avenue. 11th is the major north-south thoroughfare through Wakeman, connecting downtown with Highways 24 and 89, becoming 89 on the other side of Wakeman Boulevard. As a result, it's a thriving commercial area. It wouldn't be a complete town in the Pacific Northwest without the obligatory Starbucks. (Facing east toward 11th)

And the busiest intersection in town, 11th and Gilmour. It's so busy that the intersection is far over its capacity, resulting in many serious accidents. (Facing south on 11th)

However, the city's public works department has acquired funding to improve this vital corridor, and construction has already begun. (Again, facing south on 11th)

You'll see more of the South 11th Avenue Corridor Improvement Project in future updates.

And the obligatory curvy road picture. This is in the remote northern part of the region, along Highway 16:
