From Thursday, August 11, through Monday, August 15, George and I were in Iowa to visit my family and do all the tourist stuff. I’ve started posting pictures. I did two batches on flickr.com. The pictures of the Iowa State Fair are here and the pictures from our whirwind tour of southwest Iowa tourist sites are here. There is commentary with each photo.
Still to come are the photos from the Living History Farms in Des Moines.
It was a fantastic trip. The weather was not too hot, and although there was a bit of rain (the first they’ve had in six weeks) it did not stop any of the planned activities. More reports to come.
