Early Spring On Prairie Creek
My DD needed to shoot some photos for an assignment in her photography class, so we zipped down to the nearby state park. This is what I found while she was shooting.
What you miss out on is the sound of the water running/rushing over the rocky areas. Definitely a sign of spring!
The ice has gone out of the Des Moines river, which Prairie Creek joins just a few hundred feet downstream from this spot.
I startled a bald eagle (or more accurately, a bald eagle startled me) from it's spot on a bare branch out over the river. As it flew away downstream DD was able to capture some shots of it in flight.
