Mississippi River, Mud Lake, Iowa  ------- 

With thunderheads still towering over the east side of the Mississippi River I could not finish my short trip through the countryside without finally driving down to Mud Lake yesterday evening. The sun had disappeared already behind the ridge of the valley but threw still gorgeous light at the puffy clouds on the Wisconsin side of the river. This place is never the same twice and one of the reasons why I keep coming back over and over again.
