Moving on, the first park, in Missouri, was simple but really reflected the landscape, which has finally changed markedly. I decided to try to set up and record the gusts of wind that swept across the patches of tall grass. Success! Unfortunately, I failed to capture the beautiful call of a bird. Strange when they seem to know when you hit 'record' and go silent or dart away.
Hopefully a similar performance will happen later on our journey because it is a truly beautiful experience that will live on in my memory for some time. It's also a good reminder of just how much noise pollution humans contribute to the world and how isolated one needs to be to not feel the auditory presence of other people. It's also a testament to our ability to filter out 'noise'.
Woke up this morning and jetted to Sioux City, IA where I'm typing this, but before we left Lewis and Clark State Park in Onawa, IA we had to take pics of the third (and hopefully last!) keelboat.
