In and Around Lacon (not Bacon), Illinois

POST #    1875

Over the weekend, I headed to the rural town of Lacon, Illinois. The town of 2000 (!!!!!) people is not far from Peoria which is considerably larger at 112,936. As I'm sure you can imagine, Lacon is considerably different than New York City. I don't think I've ever seen so much corn in my life. Okay, that's a lie, because I've driven across the midwest before. But there is some beauty to Lacon and the surrounding area. The bean fields had a wonderful yellow and green color that I couldn't really capture in the 2nd picture.

And can you make out the faint spray-painted 'B' on the watertower? So perfect.

Tien, you were almost in my backyard. (Well, about a hundred miles from my backyard.) See that haze over the bean field? It's been like that for about the last three weeks and will be until after harvest. Also, everyone says Illinois is flat land. It's really not, as indicated by the gentle slope of the land behind the beans. That's river country. YOu captured it beautifuly. Very nice.
