Speed Limit


As you head north out of Eugene, the city lumbers on for a while before the space between the buildings finally begins to stretch out. This is about the spot where that happens on Prairie Road. Office buildings and warehouses, and the mini-marts that serve the people who work in them, give way to businesses like the 4-Star Meat Company, a family-owned butcher shop that turns your bow-hunted elk into steaks and sausages. Also, there’s not much traffic going through here after 5:30 or so, but what there is, is going a lot faster than 40 mph.
