The Sioux City Bridge

It was a little warmer than it has been recently, which isn't saying much, so I decided to go to Sioux City and visit the Missouri River there downtown. There's lots of stuff to see down there, and I haven't really took the time to explore a bit there yet since I've lived here.

I wish it had been different, but I did more sightseeing than picture taking. I originally just intended to get a few pictures of the river, but I ended up focusing on a few other things. One of the main things I looked at was this bridge.

This bridge takes you from Sioux City, Iowa to South Sioux City, Nebraska. These are two entirely different cities in two different states, but they are so close together that they exist as one whole community. There is also North Sioux City, South Dakota, which is the third part of this whole community. All connected by bridges.

As you can see by the above photo, it was getting a little late and I was running out of time to get more pictures. It wasn't as dark out as it seems, but I thought taking a picture into the Sun would give a nice shadowy effect. It did exactly as I had hoped. Do you like it?

I don't know if this bridge has a name. All of the bigger bridges do. This one is kind of a middle sized bridge. I like going over this bridge to South Sioux City because there's lots of Mexican restaurants there. I love Mexican food. Nothing here so far compares to Armando's in Detroit though.

There are many more things near this bridge that I need to visit on a sunnier day so I can get some good pictures. They have one little area that is full of animal statues. I gotta show you that sometime. They even have a squirrel statue. Squirrels used to be one of my best subjects. I miss them. I'll talk to you later.

  1. A fun area to explore , I like to eat taverns there. One place had them for a buck.

    1. My mom always tells me about the taverns. I've only had them one time so far though. She keeps telling me I'm missing out.

  2. I like how the sun reflects off the bridge on the first photo. It's a nice bridge---fits in well with the landscape. Somebody thought that out well.

    1. My parents have told me that there have been a few different bridges here in the past. So this one must be relatively new.

    1. Thanks. I'm glad I got them. I wasn't sure what I'd be looking at that day.

  5. Wow, the same city (sort of) in three states! My human almost got to fly into North Sioux City last October, but the trip didn't pan out.

    1. Sioux City is a nice little city. We have pretty much everything the bigger cities have, except it's all closer to each other.
