Early morning view looking south on 1600 E toward the Lamoine River in McDonough County, IL. The vantage point shows the nearest trees. A tree lined Lamoine tributary lies about a mile west and north; this small area of limited tree cover and some grassland covers three to four square miles. The area just to the north covers perhaps 30 square miles of mostly plowed fields, with less than 10 percent of the area in trees and grass.
