It has been very warm here in Iowa recently. This picture was taken on December 28. The grass looks green.
This park is located on the south side of Des Moines. It has a walking path that goes around a small lake.
You can see downtown Des Moines as you walk.
There is a long walking bridge that is very popular.
Along the bridge you see small metal memorials of people. Often there are small decorations on them.
When you get closer to this one it is very beautiful, especially in the sunlight.
I liked this one.
I saw an eagle fly across the water.
He landed in this tree.
For some reason this utility pole caught my attention. I liked seeing the crossing white jet trails above it.
I liked this blue bird house.
I could see the state capitol building as I walked around the lake. It is several miles away. Because of the lay of the land it looks like there is nothing between this park and the capitol. In reality there is a lot of housing and development. But I like thinking it is just a big open field.
And there was the downtown again.
It was a nice walk.
Thanks for stopping by.
