For those of you who visited this page earlier, I promised I would go out and try to capture some of the natural beauty of Iowa (see travelogue for previous material). And in this way, give you a feel for "my backyard". Well, here's the result.
This spring, we've been to Living History Farms, Chichaqua Bottoms, Red River Creek, Saylorville Lake, and Big Creek State Park.
