Iowa became a state in 1846

The welcome center was in the shape of a barn!

We were immediately impacted by the ethereal cycle of nature. This bird lay lifeless in front of our car, when we returned from the visitor center.

At a rundown park in Waterloo, the memorial reminds us of the five Sullivan brothers: George, Francis, Joseph, Madison, and Albert, who were all killed on the same day (Nov. 13th, 1952), during WWII.

Minnesota-inspired painting, One Fur Trade, was placed on display at Kavanaugh Gallery in Des Moines, IA. (above) Mr. Kavanaugh stands with artists, Alfonso Llamas and Kristin Abraham.

The new capital building sits up on a hill, overlooking all of Des Moines!

People in Iowa look forward to the state fair all year, and they show up with remarkably large animals, such as this huge boar! Here, a little girl was just told that it will bite her arm off if she puts her hand in between the bars!

This Brahman/Angus bull, named Blacky, weighs 3,090 pounds! Its head alone was as large as a human torso!

The fair lights inspired the sky in "City of Silos"
