After a pleasant hike along the trails at Preparation Canyon in the Loess Hills, I stopped at the observation deck to watch the sunset, and then headed west into the river valley. As I crossed a bridge over the Little Sioux River I did a double take when I saw the twilight reflecting off the water. The wind had dropped and the water reflected a wispy cloud and the evening star. As I made my way back home along gravel roads, it seemed like I could not help but bump into pictures. The lights in the distance to the left of the river is from a combine and tractor on the Rick Stanislav farm. As I passed along the county road, Rick was standing on top of his grain truck as his son Jay topped off the trailer with harvested corn.
