Just downstream from the 7th street bridge, the North Fork makes a 90 degree turn to the south.
“Party Bridge” crosses on County Road 4000N.
Newly tilled and planted field. It is subject to flooding, so we will see what happens as the summer progresses.
Here is the view a few days later with the planted field showing its crop of corn emerging.
The plan is to photograph the field as the season progresses — happy to report, no new graffiti on the bridge, but their is a nice grocery cart and a big screen TV available there 🙂 — no new bullet casing either, so that is encouraging!
This morning 2 turkey vultures are assembling with some sort of plan of action in mind.
Vultures are disturbed by the arrival of the Diamond Back — I don’t think the vultures are responsible for the graffiti.
Back home, the Diamond Back receives a post ride Cat Scan.
(no kitties were impaled by the kickstand in the making of this photo)
Progress of the Field:
Person in the white vehicle was releasing an opossum they had live trapped.
Bridge barely visible to the right of the tiny white spot at the base of the trees
Harvest isn’t far off now
So, there we are, from May 5th to Sept 24th, 2018
More than half of IL corn will be exported – the remainder used for ethanol, processed into various products, and livestock feed
