There's local news in this photo taken yesterday:  
trees are starting to turn color 
and
cornfields are not quite ready to be combined.

Mississippi River between Marquette, Iowa, and Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin...


I confess this scene was cropped out of a drive-by photo taken on the bridge.

Here's the Julien Dubuque monument
overlooking the Mississippi River...


And, another view of the riverboat, 
with the city of Dubuque, Iowa, in the background...

Went walking and looking for asters yesterday.  
Found mostly white ones like these...


 There was one clump of purple ones.  
Almost deleted this photo of them 
but then decided the curliques were cute...

Here's some photos taken recently in St. Donatus, Iowa...




There's a walking trail between the church and chapel.

Its been three weeks since the previous blogpost.  
Maybe you thought I flew away with the Thunderbirds.  

Here's a final photo from the summer season...

Here's a photo I took as we crossed the Mississippi River into Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, last week.

In the foreground is a plant I'd never seen before our drive last week and I have no clue what it is.

A Mississippi River bridge which has fascinated me ever since I was a kid...


Thursday, August 7, 2014


Recently, my husband and I visited the old town of Motor.  We hadn't been there since the bridge was repaired and made usable a few years ago.
