The Iowa Sticker

2016 Out West, Iowa, Road Trip

Our rules regarding the map on the side of the T@B say that we must do something interesting and also spend at least one night in a state before we can add the state sticker to our map. Last summer we drove through a portion of Iowa on our way from Minnesota to Illinois but didn’t stop so the Iowa space stayed empty. Now though we’ve visited a couple sites in Winterset and spent a night at Winterset City Park so we can fill in that space. Iowa is the 43rd state we two have visited in our T@B since late July 2013. Five more to go to fill in all of the contiguous 48!

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.
