The End of Harvest

Things are quieting down in Iowa. After lots and lots of rain, the farmers were finally able to bring in the majority of their crops. The fields around the house were harvested this weekend. With Brian at work (per usual), the dogs and I decided to do some exploring (and to try out my new camera lens). Mattie always has her nose to the ground, trying to finds birds to track. The only thing she did find was a coyote den (that appears to currently be in use). On the left side of the photo you can see the trail they use to get through the barbed-wire fence that separates two fields. We hear coyotes often at night, but didn't realize they lived so close.
On the other hand, Dawson seldom does any tracking. Mostly he runs around kicking up his heels being a goof. A lone stalk that the harvest missed. Our acreage among the bare fields and trees. Yup, we live in the middle of nowhere- it is confirmed.
