Iowa is farming. Drive anywhere and you will pass endless fields of corn and soybeans. I-80 bisects the State. Most people never get off except for gas or food. I am not going to attempt a complete picture of the State having little personal knowledge. I will show a few sites that were hidden away among all of that corn. Places that you, too, can discover by taking some of those exits off of the interstate.

Then you can see that Iowa is not only about corn and hogs ? it just seems that way at times ;-]

    Not exactly one of your usual mountain climbing destinations! But fine photos and descriptions nonetheless.

    We can certainly hope you continue to throw out these absolutely wonderful tidbits such as the historic museum of the Mennonites. Thanks again.
