May 3rd - Polk County, Iowa

A change in tactics for this week! As it is getting more difficult to find places fitting our criteria within a "commutable" distance, we have decided to also start visiting different counties around Iowa looking for places to photograph. This has been helped by a kind person who divided up the list of needed photographs on Wikipedia by county!

Today we will be visiting Polk County, Iowa! Formed in 1846 and named after the 11th President of the United States, Polk County is home to Des Moines, the state capitol, and an estimated population in 2007 of 418,339.
