And the Bridges

2016 Out West, Iowa, Road Trip

Even before the 1992 publication of Robert James Waller’s novel and the 1995 release of the movie starring Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep the Bridges of Madison County, Iowa have been celebrated. This one was moved to Winterset City Park in 1970 before the first Covered Bridge Festival. We checked it out after a dinner at the Northside Cafe in town but weren’t inclined to seek any others or even any geocaches in this extreme heat. It’s not just the humidity, it’s also the heat, with heat index over 105°F !

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
