Today I went to Ironton, the nearest small town and climbed up all of these steps to bring you pictures of our little town. You can only see about half of the steps from here but trust me, it is a long way to the top. These steps lead to an over look over our little town.
From the top of these steps you can see things like this, which is our little strip mall type place right before you go into town. I don't know if this picture does justice to the amount of stairs I had to climb to take these pictures but it was the most exercise I have had in awhile. Our little town is very economically depressed. There are very few jobs here and the ones that are here are low paying.
What I like about camera's is that you can't see from here how sad our once busy little town has become. The bridge you see goes across the Ohio river into Kentucky.
Right before I went to take these pictures it finally rained. It rained pretty hard and I think it washed the yuck out of the atmosphere and left me with a beautiful sunset to try to capture pictures of. I tried my best but I still need some practice.
