Des Moines is located in the state of Iowa in the United States. It’s the state capital and largest city in Iowa. Des Moines was founded in 1843 and incorporated as a city in 1851. It is named after the Des Moines River, which may have been adapted from the French Rivière des Moines, literally meaning “River of the Monks.” The juncture of the Des Moines and Raccoon rivers has attracted humans for at least 3,000 years. Today about 200,000 people live in the Des Moines urban area and about 562,000 people live in the Des Moines metropolitan area. This photo of the city’s skyline has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 25th of November 2010.
