Spring teasing Siouxland, Adams Homestead

20 Mar

Today in the Siouxland area it was another spring-like day, with the temperature reaching near 60 degrees fahrenheit. But in a couple of days, the temperatures will plunge stopping somewhere in the 30’s with the possibility of more snow. A couple of weeks ago Mother Nature teased Siouxland with warm temperatures and I took advantage of that day to go for a walk in the Adams Homestead and Nature Preserve just across the state line in North Sioux City, South Dakota. The ground was still frozen then with just melted snow forming large puddles. The homestead area of the preserve is a fun place to walk around and to imagine what life must have been like then, in the late 1800’s when the family that owned the land first moved to the area. I really like photographing the red barn and trying to capture different images of it.
