Here is an interesting video commissioned by Kohll's Pharmacy in Malvern to help promote the Wabash Trace. The artist/creator Zach Jones has combined aerial photography with a time lapse photography of a painting being created.
The Wabash Trace Nature Trail reflects Iowa's natural beauty while giving the Omaha/Council Bluffs Metro area a quick escape to the country. It also provides many rural towns a more progressive option for needed traffic.
We hope you enjoy this presentation. To learn more about Zack Jones and his work, click here to visit his website.
