There she blows!

Took the day off to witness the demolition of the east bound span of the Chain of Rocks Canal bridge near Granite City today. Got there early and found a good spot on the bridge to get some photos, along with a couple hundred other people. There weren’t as many photographers there as I was expecting but none the less it was worth taking the day off to watch it.

Eagle Call!

It’s that time of year when the Bald Eagles congregate along the Mississippi River between Alton and Grafton. This one was just sitting in the tree along the highway. Pulled over and got some shots. We drove up farther north and about an hour later came back by and it was still there. Lots of cars pulled over taking a look.
