Many of you know that my home is in Iowa. I love to travel, yet it is always nice to come home to my quiet little corner of the world. Are you wanting to visit a beautiful, quiet destination? Well, Iowa may be where you want to go! In case you didn’t know, we are more than fly over country, even in the midst of winter.
We have had stunning sunrises and sunsets this winter and I thought I’d share some of the sites in my neck of the woods. And just maybe, you will want to come and see what all of this natural beauty is all about! The skies have been extremely colorful in the early morning hours, wouldn’t you agree?
And just a few minutes later, this is how this area looked.
Nature is all around us in the wide open spaces of Iowa. Bald eagles seem to be coming out of the woodwork. This was just amazing to see, right in my backyard! Have you ever seen a bald eagle in a snow covered area?
We took a ride in Old Blue and ended up near all of this nature!
Family events and festivals, continue all year long in Iowa. In fact, it’s often a time to celebrate. The Colors of the Wind KiteFestival is always an amazing experience in Clear Lake, Iowa.
Have you ever flown a kite in the winter on an iced lake? Head on out to Clear Lake on February 20, 2016 to experience this unique winter time festival in Iowa.
Our local parks offer views that you cannot find anywhere else. East Park in Mason City, Iowa offers year round nature experiences for everyone.
The wildlife, such as deer, turkeys, pheasants and bald eagles are more visible than ever before. We have a nice snow cover this year and there’s usually a little bit of beauty everywhere you look. How’s this?
Iowa and the midwest are often thought of as fly over country. I challenge you to come visit us. And you may have figured it out, if you are a photography enthusiast, Iowa is your place! Here’s a little glimpse into my smaller world~ my yard on an early winter morning.
