Photos taken September 13, 2008 near 8:30 a.m. This was the first stop on a trip to northwest Iowa. We had a steady rain - we didn't get out of the car, and I had to sit back from the open window to get photos without getting raindrops on the camera lens!
Additional photos - without rain - were taken March 21, 2009 around 9:45 a.m.
