This morning, we drove home to meet up with a friend for lunch. It was raining throughout the southern part of Iowa, but the rain stopped shortly after crossing into Missouri. I think this is about the prettiest I have seen this part of the highway. Normally, it’s pretty uninspiring, but today the shades of green were accented by the soft light of the partly cloudy sky. This picture doesn’t do it justice, but we didn’t really have time to stop and do some serious photography.
