Eastern Iowa Explorations
Our time in Iowa was centered on the Mississippi River, though we did drive inland to tour the Herbert Hoover National Historic Site and Presidential Library and Museum.

During our visit we explored Effigy Mounds National Monument, the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium, and Black Hawk State Park (on an island in the Mississippi, it is technically in Illinois).

The area surprised us with its natural beauty—in eastern Iowa it is not just corn fields and pig farms!
