    Wow, Jim, what a wide collection of Iowa places. Iowa is an under-rated state but you have shown that it has much to offer.

    I've been here a few times, and admit I never realized there was so much hidden in Iowa! Thanks for the walk through ... I'll have to check out some of this stuff next time I visit!

    A superb guided tour through the great state of Iowa. Even though it is the next state down, I hardly ever get there.

    Pella brings in terrific chicken cutlet and grilled pepper sandwiches for their catered luncheons - and yes we spec their windows

    Iowa looks very international. Never knew there was a Dutch settlement there! Great sunset pic of lake Okoboji ;-p
