This is part of Iowa's capital city, Des Moines. I was born here and have lived here (West Des Moines) my whole life. With the surrounding suburbs the population is roughly 500,000 with Des Moines proper being roughly 200,000 of that. It has a lot of big city activities, just on a smaller scale, which is fine with me. The tall building on the left is 801 Grand and is the tallest building in Iowa at 45 stories. On the top floor is a restaurant where I have on occasion tuned their piano. It's quite a view on a clear day.
