Fascinating landscape, so well registered - Like - My regards.
We here at FracTracker are developing an android/iphone app sourced from citizens and some of our staff chronicling the hydrocarbon industrial complex. We would like to incorporate any of your IL sand mine pics because as you know silica sand or "proppant" is an integral component of the High Volume Hydraulic Fracturing (HVHF) process. I was in IL's LaSalle County last summer to take photos of their mines and just finished a piece on that herehttp://www.fractracker.org/2016/01/7-sand-mining-communities-part-1/Would you mind sharing some of your silica sand mine pics including this one as long as we fully cite your contribution?

I was here at the 100th Anniversary back in 2003. They were trying to reenact the flight with a replica, but there just wasn't enough wind that morning. At the very minute, 100 years before, that the Wrights made their flight, I jogged at about 10ft/sec from the beginning of their path to the end, the same true ground speed the Wrights flew at. It's one of the greatest moments of my life, and I'm grateful no one else in attendance thought to do it. Heck, hardly anyone was even over by the historical path at that moment. The crowd was a couple hundred yards away staring at the rain-soaked replica 'Flyer' (which we all knew wasn't flying anywhere that morning).

Nice series of pictures.. Love some of the comments.. Gravity and Nuclear, glad I took science so I would not get confused... This picture is really the best so far, have to look at the other 66 though.. If you noticed, on the right side your slip is showing.. LOL
