Somewhere in Illinois...
We made a stop on our road trip so I could do some posing. It almost looks like I'm sitting in the middle of some bars of baking chocolate... that have been sitting around in the pantry too long!
But really I was really sitting on what was once a muddy river bank!
Cracked mud is not everyone's idea of a scenic spot to watch the sunrise. But I could peek through a couple slabs of cement and look out over the Missouri River! No complaints!
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
