My husband and I returned this week from a road trip north to visit family. Since moving to Florida, road trips are a rare occasion and usually involve driving no more than a couple of hours around the state. This road trip racked up 3800 miles on the odometer of the car. We had 4 stops along our route with the second one reaching our home state of Iowa. Crossing over the Des Moines River from Missouri just over the bridge lies Iowa. I captured this photo of the Iowa Welcome sign found at every major road that enters into the state. As an added bonus the county we entered is Lee County, the county where I was born.
