Abandoned grain container

Highway F20L, near Preparation Canyon, Iowa

And less than ten feet from it:

I tried to take the two together but my picture didn't come out and the light was leaving. This area will definately have a return trip.

Preparation Canyon: In the 1850s, a group of Mormans (after receiving a message from the "Spirit") broke off and settled here. They built a "School of Preparation for the Life Beyond". It is now a state park.

Midwest Hotel, Pisgah, Iowa
