Yellow Banks County Park is located just 3 radio songs southeast of my house, but a world away. The primitive camping area is located high on a bluff of yellow loess soil overlooking a wide bend on the Des Moines River. An area sacred to native peoples, an Indian burial mound is just a short hike from the camping area. It’s my favorite place for solo camping, journaling, and reconnecting to Creation. These photos were taken in October 2011 and I used Lightroom for editing. The river was very low, resulting in a wide sandbar. I loved the “Loch Ness” driftwood. And as for the bugs??? Couldn’t make up my mind which picture I liked best, so I posted three of them. Hope that doesn’t make me too voyeuristic!
