Kansas City in Lights

A full moon makes an appearance through the clouds next to Giralda Tower on a December Saturday night on the Country Club Plaza shopping center in Kansas City, Missouri. The tower is lit with Christmas lights as part of the Plaza’s holiday lighting display. Every Thanksgiving, the Country Club Plaza comes to life with Christmas lights that glow until mid-January. The Plaza was the first shopping center in the world designed to accommodate shoppers arriving by automobile. Established in 1922 by J. C. Nichols, the Plaza was designed architecturally after Seville, Spain.

A beautifully decorated Christmas tree reaches to the ornate and colorful ceiling of Union Station in Kansas City, Missouri. Opened in 1914, Union Station serves Kansas City, Missouri, and the surrounding metropolitan area.

In 2002, Union Station saw its return as a train station when Amtrak began providing public transportation services and has since become Missouri’s second-busiest train station. It is celebrating its centennial with is tradition of offering a variety of activities and displays for the public

Colorado Elk

A bull elk bugles (calls) to his herd of about fifty female elk, who are following him on a hillside in Estes Park, Colorado. It’s November, and the competition for females is over for the year. The town of Estes Park is outside of Rocky Mountain National Park. The elk or wapiti (Cervus canadensis) is one of the largest species within the deer family, Cervidae, in the world, and one of the largest terrestrial mammals in North America and Northeast Asia.
