Madison County

Hogback Bridge

Had Monday off from work for the holiday, so I drove to Des Moines to meet my brother for dinner. Left early so I could detour through Madison County to snap a few pictures before dinner. This was my first time seeing the Bridges of Madison County and the Clark Tower, and I picked a lousy day for it. It was cloudy and frigid cold outside. I only made it to four of the bridges with the time I had.I’m sure I will return when I have more time, and hopefully better weather.

Black Squirrel


I lived in Sioux City for 21 years. I saw lots of squirrels there, but in all that time I only ever saw one black one and two white ones. When I moved to Council Bluffs I noticed a black squirrel running around the neighborhood. Then another. And Another. They are everywhere down here.
