Summertime In Iowa

My home state is Iowa and I often run into a lot of people that say they have driven through or flew over it. Summertime is loaded with color, which all of you know that I appreciate. I thought I’d share a photo story of what we have this time of year in Iowa. And just maybe, you will want to slow down a little bit and come visit. If summer is not your season, you can also get a glimpse of what winter has to offer: Winter Beauty In Iowa.

This is a small sampling of what is in my backyard when I am home in Iowa. If you want to know more about Iowa, you can go here and view a digital Iowa travel guide. My home is in North Central Iowa, which is fairly flat. The neat thing that most people don’t know about Iowa, is the fact that there are several areas of the state that you can see for miles and others where there are rolling hills.

So, tell me. When can I expect to see you in my home state of Iowa?

    Sunsets are spectacular and I will admit it, I do take them for granted and should not.

    These are some beautiful photos! We did a road trip around Ohio and I loved it and would love to explore more of these less traveled States, I feel like everyone wants to visit California or New York, but this country has a lot to do elsewhere with less tourists 😉

    I don’t know anything about Iowa to be honest. From your photos it looks like a quiet little place where you can have a nice relaxing vacation while getting to know the local way of life.

    We were in Iowa in 2011 and loved the covered bridges, the Grotto, the Effigy Mounds and other sights!
