My attention has just been drawn to the “Water Towers of America” froup in Mr Zuckerberg's Walled Garden.  Many splendid specimens in their natural environments.

Water tower: Franklin Park IL by Mr Larrington, on Flickr

Getting closer requires crossing a busy dual cabbageway, it was far too hot to indulge in pedestrianism and I'd been awake for far too long, so I didn't try.

No. Nor am I likely to.  Wrong side of Chicago from where I was this year and I'm going home from Seattle.

All the ones I've posted in the last couple of weeks were posted on the day they were taken.  I was on the road for two weeks before arriving in Battle Mountain.  Chicago -> St Louis, follow the Missouri up to Montana, across the mountains, down the Clearwater/Snake/Columbia rivers to the Pacific Coast and then down to Battle Mountain. Returning to BRITAIN from Seattle in a couple of weeks time.
