Today I took the south loop to our Vicksburg National Military Park for an afternoon walk and took some pictures of the Iowa State Memorial. My mother used to live in a house behind this monument when she was little and she told me she used to play on it. This side of the park loops real close to I-20 and also Mission 66, a road through town.

I took this picture with the sun shinning against it. A very unusual look!
