Little Sioux

River flowing at sunset
Little Sioux River in Monona County, Iowa.

After a pleasant hike along the trails at Preparation Canyon in the Loess Hills, I stopped at the observation deck to watch the sunset, and then headed west into the river valley.  As I crossed a bridge over the Little Sioux River I did a double take when I saw the twilight reflecting off the water. The wind had dropped and the water reflected a wispy cloud and the evening star.  As I made my way back home along gravel roads, it seemed like I could not help but bump into pictures.  The lights in the distance to the left of  the river is from  a combine and tractor on the Rick Stanislav farm.  As I passed along the county road, Rick was standing on top of his grain truck as his son Jay topped off the trailer with harvested corn.
