Winter Hike on the Upper Missouri River Bottoms

I snapped some photos this last Saturday during a hike along the upper Missouri River bottoms. Here is a brief collection of some of the shots.

The second photo is the historic steel truss railroad bridge that spans Bismarck-Mandan, and it reminded me of the aesthetics that today are appropriated by steam-punk artists. If you want to know what steam punk might be, click here on this link.

This next photo is an overview of the railroad bridge, with the winter sun setting in the late-afternoon.

And this final photo is of the icefishing that takes place on the Missouri River at the Grant Marsh boat landing. The I-94 Grant Marsh Bridge is also in the photo, but it does not look 1/64th as nice as the historic steel truss railroad bridge from three and four generations ago.
