We arrived at the train station in Fort Madison, Iowa (Helen, her sister, and their mother are riding a train to California) before the lobby was open so we drove around Fort Madison for a bit. I stopped to take this guy's picture but he wasn't about to take flight. It's a game of patience and my bladder gave in before he took off.
Everyone is safely on the train and riding the rails towards California - and I'm in Keokuk, Iowa for Eagle Appreciation Days. Stay tuned - there will be more Eagle pictures!!
