Iowa Pipeline Walk: Day 21

Wednesday, March 25, 2015 – Kelley, Iowa
{For the latest Iowa Pipeline Walk route and schedule detail, click here.}

Even with much help from so many talented people, it’s a challenge to juggle all my obligations on this walk. I have been falling behind on posting many of the photographs I want to share with you. So, here is a selection from my walk across Polk and Story counties.

The pipeline would pass through ISU’s land, and many Story County residents don’t understand why the University’s leadership is not opposed. Certainly, most of the students and staff Dave and I spoke with are opposed.
