The wheat behind our house was harvested this week. They started in late afternoon and worked into the night over several days, and still have not finished.

Last Saturday, I pulled in the driveway and this little guy was digging in the yard. I got out of the van with my camera and walked to the back and took a few shots. He saw me and jumped to the tree and looked around the other side to see what I was doing. He then slithered down the tree.

This suspension bridge spans the Arkansas River near Canon City, Colorado (southwest of Colorado Springs). The bridge was built in 1929, is 1,260 feet long, and is 1,053 feet above the river. Marianne and I were there in 1987. The bridge is part of a Park and per the web site includes more attractions than when we were there. We both took pictures there and neither of remembers who took which, so we both take credit for this post.
We walked across the bridge and rode the aeriel tram back, A thousand feet down to the river and the railroad. The tracks are cantilevered out over the river near the bridge (braces visible in the picture below).
