HERE WE ARE IN EAST CENTRAL IOWA. We are taking a good look at the corn and beans on the farm.
Granddaughter examines the soy beans up close. Leaves, pods what is going on?
In Ames, Iowa we spend part of the morning at Reiman Gardens. Thanks so much to the cousins who give us a private tour. (Watch for an upcoming post featuring this wonderful place.)
This is my beloved Union where I spent many hours in my college days working, studying, playing cards and other types of mischief. Under construction, of course. Improvements everywhere, but the college prospect thought the place looked old. Wonder why?
Above is a picture of the large arena near our hotel in downtown Omaha, very impressive.
The brick buildings at Creighton were very beautiful. But time to head home, driving all across Iowa to spend some short but quality time in Galena, Illinois, a favorite place. My first time to drive from the Missouri River to the Mississippi River in one day. The next day driving home to Michigan. We thought of Jerry every day and stopped at the lovely country cemetery where we said another good-bye and thanked him again for all he had taught all three of us about midwest road tripping.
