Damn Trees
Title:  Damn Trees
Description:  Of course in steam days cinders would have cleared the treeline. Nowadays foliage encroaches upon open scenes along the right of way in many places. A westbound manifest crosses the Missouri River and the state line between Iowa and Nebraksa upon this gorgeous former C&NW span. I will still take spring over winter.

Vernal fields
Title:  Vernal fields
Description:  Mid-afternoons have had some lengthy lulls lately. I waited at the Route 30 overpass for awhile, then rode east into Iowa looking for a train. This fellow had left Missouri Valley and I caught it crossing the Missouri, then scooted back out to the overpass west of Kennard to catch it at this nice vantage point. Things are looking more green. About time!
