A walk on Sylvan Island

Today was another beautiful sunny fall day in the Quad Cities. I took my dog, Bear, for a walk on Sylvan Island in Moline.

One of the main paths on Sylvan Island. (click on the pictures to see them full size.)

That's Bear up ahead on the right side of the path.

The Moline power dam and a popular fishing spot.

Sylvan Island is one of my favorite places in the Quad Cities, and its also one of our little-known treasures.

I love Sylvan Island. May it be left alone forever. Just...don't touch it.

Though, one does wonder, from time to time, what kind of toxins are lurking in the soil there. Has anyone tested the land out there? The place has a smell to it that is quite interesting.

It is very beautiful. When I make my movie, it will be centered on this wonderful isle.
