People have said that when they visit the American Great Plains, that they can't see anything for miles, except for two things: corn and wheat, and Grain elevators.
What has been best described as the Skyscrapers of the Great Plains, they are used for many things. They are used for storing corn for long periods of time, and for drying corn after it's harvested.
The picture was taken in a town west of where I live. My family had to take our dog to the vet, and were going to be early for our appointment. We drove around and went through this alley where this picture was taken.
If anybody on Photoblog lives in the mid-west of America, then you know what I'm talking about.
So, if you live out in the west and see a "skyscraper" think twice. It's not what you may think it is!
