Earth Mover and Autumn Tree a Close Match But No Mike Mulligan in Sight

Steam Shovels live on in storybooks as Mary Anne in the Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel by Virginia Burton.  Modern day road work accomplished by high tech vehicles. This one parked by the side of the road as they install a Traffic Light at the corner of Old State Road and Lewis Center Road.

    Nature and man–both can create beauty. I think Nature wins though.
    You do see beauty in the ordinary Ruth. Thanks.
