Big Red Crane

Today at the construction site near our office a big red crane started to do some work.

While I was in Germany last week I was watching the construction cam, and saw that the crane had arrived on site and had been put together on Friday.

I was occasionally looking at the construction cam today, but wanted to get a ground level view. I also needed a nice long walk to help combat jet lag.

Here is the view from the side of our building. You can see the big crane peeking over the trees.

    We have a crane in the section of our state called Big Brutus. It is now inactive, however a site to visit and spend with the historical staff and curators. In southeast Kansas.
